    "This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the East Anglian Fenland in the early medieval period This is probably one of the most important books to appear in recent years on the East Anglian Fenland, but the arguments presented here may also hold relevance to an understanding of the cultural background of a much wider area.".   The features so characteristic of the Fenland, its flatness, its flooding, its vast stretches of silt land and black peat, its drainage channels, meres, buried forests, abundant water fowl and aquatic plants, its special crops, all relate to the special conditions in which the Fenland was formed Author: Harry Godwin.

A short history of the Fens The Fens have always been a unique part of England: few places today retain an individual character but Fenland certainly does.
