So to follow up the orignal reading list, this is a more early medieval reading list relating to 10th and 11th century Anglo-Saxon England and the conflict with Scandinavian forces who are out viking. it is by no means exhaustive but they are good start points. I will add that a couple on this list are very hard to come by as they are no longer in print or Academic based so the price can be steep but the vast majority are still in active print and not to expensive coming in between £15 to £25
