Once the capital of Northumbria, with a realm extending from the Humber in the South to the Firth of Forth in the North, Bamburgh has been occupied for over 10,000 years. Northumbria was the most powerful political and military force in England during the 7th and 8th Centuries with Bamburgh Castle at its heart. Home to Anglo-Saxon kings, one, Oswald, later canonised along with the monk Aidan, for their efforts to convert pagan England to Christianity.
The charms of Bamburgh Castle are brought together in this book as seen through the eyes of artist Peter Phillips along with words by director of the castle, Chris Calvert.
With a forward by Francis Watson-Armstrong.
