Andrea Am I the only one looking forward to In the Land of Giants: A Journey Through the Dark Ages? I like how the author describes not only the dark ages landmarks, but also the landscape, and puts them both into historical context.

Sandy No Andrea, you aren't the only one looking forward to" In The Land Of Giants; A Journey Through The Dark Ages."
