If you enjoyed the Game of Thrones books... (yes books - that reading thing). I have just finished an awesome series of books that you may enjoy. http://www.bernardcornwell.net/series/the-saxon-stories/ Vikings, knights etc. etc. It's about the viking invasion of england. And the author does a great job of mirroring real history - but with a seriously awesome story line. As I was reading the books, I came across this... https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=...d=209484870686648628257.000494a84553bf0484941 Some wonderful person took the time to mark off the places mentioned in the books. You can see some of the real castles (some have been kept up, most are ruins now). Anyhoo... I finished all 6 books in under 2 weeks. It's full of blood, gore, war, sex and other yummy goodness. All written in a compelling and very accessible style. Enjoy!
