What must be the circumstances that would creat a man to set in motion the demise of Catholic absolutism and the birth of free thought and free men? The trilogy egins in the late fifteenth century, in 865 AD, and it barely spans five years, but it ’ s enough to cover 1300 pages and sweep clean the historical slate, preparing the Western world to precociously toddle into the renaissance and enlightenment and beyond.

Shef is confident that the world will no longer succumb to the enforced ignorance of the previous 500 years, aware that great school he founded with Asgard ’ s Way, in England, at thi present site of Cambridge, is working to discover more techniques to improve agriculture, medicine, and the manufacture iron and steel, as ofte as create new machines.
