Warlords" concentrates on the last period, and in particular on certain leaders, combining the archaeology with written sources for post-Roman Britain.

Parliament traces its roots back to the earliest meetings of English barons and commoners in the 8th century. The two bodies didn’t regularly convene, but they paved the way to the bicameral legislature that exists today.
