Maps to the endpapers. This book fills in a part of the great blank in the history of Somerset and North Devon in the two and a half centuries between the end of the Roman occupation and the arrival of the Saxons in the South-West. It does so by giving an account of the Welsh monks who crossed to the south shore of the Bristol Channel and set up churches and monasteries, inspired by their own severely ascetic version of Christianity.
