British Ancient History

I have learned that the Anglo Saxon Chronicles are incomplete because they were copied from other documents, and the Saxons would leave out their defeats in battle which left big chunks in the story.

 The British Chronicles written by Nennius and the Chronicles of  Gildas as well as the Welsh Chronicles by Bede are all much more accurate of the dark ages in British history as they were written several hundred years earlier then the Anglo Saxon Chronicles. There is also the ancient book of the Kings of Britain believed to cover the Cornish Kings of the bronze and early Iron age, you can also read the Magna Carta and much more. I hope you find it as interesting as I did.
