In connection with this royal survey. The Domesday Book? Damville was furious.

Damville reined in his horse and swung its head round to view the devastated target. In connection with this royal survey. Call it what you will, I’ll have no more dealings with it. When the first commissioners came to the county, I went before them and gave all the evidence that was asked of me. What more do they want? There is only one way to find out. I will not be sent for in this manner, Huegon.

Author of many buoyant novels set in the theater world of the Elizabethan era (The Roaring Boy, p. 672, et., Marston has a touch that grows heavy when he tackles earlier times. Here again, in this third of a new series (The Ravens of Blackwater, 1994; The Wolves of Savernake, 1993), William the Conqueror is reigning just after the Norman Conquest. The King has sent Ralph Delchard, a soldier, and lawyer Gervase Bret to Herefordshire to settle land claims among Welsh, Saxon, and Norman.

I am upset with myself that it has taken me so long to discover Edward Marston.

Comments to eBook The Dragons of Archenfield (Domesday)
Stan
First Sentence: He was coming down the hill when they struck.

Norman soldier Ralph Delchard and Breton lawyer Gervase Bret travel around Britain to resolve disputes to ensure the information in King Henry's Domesday Book is correct. Archenfield in Herefordshire is situated in the English/Welsh border. There is a conflict as to who owns the land. When the men arrive, a wealthy landowner, and principal witness to the conflict, has just been burned alive in his home, a Welch lion filled with blood curved into the soil in front of his house.

Marston's writing has a wonderful voice. His characters come to life for me. The two men, Ralph and Gervase, are companions and friends but opposite in temperament.

They travel with the often annoying Canon Hubert and Brother Simon who is terrified of women. We learn a bit more about Ralph as he talks about his late wife. In this book, we have Idwal the Welch Archdeacon about whom even Brother Simon comments "Blessed are the deaf...for they cannot hear him."

It is that humor that offsets the occasionally gruesome action. Marston's books make me think of Shakespeare; exciting, suspenseful, battle scenes and sword fights, duplicity, betrayal, humor and a touch of romance. There is a wonderful discussion between Richard Orbec, an English landowner, and Ralph about war being murder.

Marston's sense of time, place and historical detail is wonderful. There was one portent, which I shall forgive, a surprising twist and an ending I loved.

I highly recommend this book, and series, to anyone who loves historical mysteries.

An interesting mystery in an original and unconventional setting.

While looking into land fraud for the Domesday Book, our heroes, A Norman Knight and a Saxon Clerk, find murder and kidnapping with a Range War in the 12th century. And a murder to solve. The plot twists and turns carrying you along through a complex landscape of deceit, treachery, love and hate. But it is fascinating and Marstons' writing is marvelous. His historical research shows.
