This blog is maintained by me, Tim Clarkson, an author and historian who writes about the early medieval period (AD 400 to 1100).
I run two other blogs: Senchus (on early medieval Scotland) and Heart of the Kingdom (early medieval Govan). This blog is called SASVA and is my notepad for topics relating to the Vikings and their era. Most of the posts here will be about Britain but some will look to other places, such as Ireland and Scandinavia. The name SASVA is an acronym for the blog’s former name Strathclyde and the Anglo-Saxons in the Viking Age, which is also the title of one of my books. The change of name reflects a broadening of the blog’s scope to include more topics, such as Lady Æthelflæd of Mercia whose life-story is the subject of another of my books.
