Hereward (Biography, Letters & Diaries). 0750908076 (ISBN13: 9780750908078). Head, saying - "Why don't you write an up-to-date biography of Hereward the Wake?" Mr. Head might have replied - "There's nothing to write. There are no contemporary sources; there are only a few living-memory sources and they're contradictory; what's left is myth created by over-imaginative Victorians. But, somehow, a contract was signed and a book was written-but it's not a biography of Hereward the Wake.

Hereward the Wake (pronounced /ˈhɛrɪwəd/) (c. 1035 – c. 1072), (also known as Hereward the Outlaw or Hereward the Exile), was an Anglo-Saxon nobleman and a leader of local resistance to the Norman Conquest of England. His base, when leading the rebellion against the Norman rulers, was the Isle of Ely in East Anglia. According to legend he roamed the Fens, covering North Cambridgeshire, Southern Lincolnshire and West Norfolk, leading popular opposition to William the Conqueror.

From the enveloping gloom of Norman oppression only one last centre of resistance remained - the Isle of Ely in the fens of East Anglia.

Hereward the Wake, (flourished 1070–71), Anglo-Saxon rebel against William the Conqueror and the hero of many Norman and English legends. He is associated with a region in present-day Huntingdonshire and Northamptonshire. In 1070, expecting a conquest of England by King Sweyn II of Denmark, Hereward and some followers joined a force of Danish sailors who had come to Ely. Together they sacked Peterborough Abbey, perhaps to prevent its treasures from falling into the hands of the new Norman abbot, Turold. Soon after, Sweyn made peace with William the Conqueror, and so the Danes returned home.

An investigation into the historical figure of Hereward the Wake, who led the last resistance movement against the Normans in Britain. The book seeks to remove the layers of fiction and myth that have built up and examines the historical evidence about him.
