Rosemary Sutcliff’s historical novels, from Bronze Age to 19th Century

Posted by

Someone recently asked me if there were other novels by Rosemary Sutcliff set in the Bronze Age , apart from Warrior Scarlet. This set me thinking. Helped by a livejournal posting I came across a while back, and based on my own reading (some of it too long ago), I came up with this list—exceluding the re-tellings such as Beowulf. I imagine regular readers here can improve it? Anything missing?

  1. This is what I came here to find. I’ve just started rereading her novels again and thought I’d go through them chronologically; i.e. by historical date, rather than the date written or published. And here you’ve provided a helpful list. Thanks very much :)
