Bronze summer : the northland trilogy

What would have been the bed of the North Sea is now Northland, a society of prosperous, literate and self-sufficient people. They live off the bounty of the land, an area created by the building of the Wall. It began as a simple dam, thousands of years ago. Now, inhabited from end to end, the Wall is a linear city stretching for hundreds of miles, and a wonder of the world. For millennia, the Wall has also kept the growing empires of the Bronze Age at bay. But decades of drought have destabilized those eastern civilizations. Men--and women--filled with greed and ambition have now turned their eyes toward the fertile West. A new and turbulent age is dawning. For any wall, no matter how strong, can be breached--particularly from within.

  • "In de Bronstijd sluit de Extelur-nederzetting in Oost-Engeland een monsterverbond met een koningin om te voorkomen dat een Trojaan er een nieuw Troje zal vestigen."
  • "Centuries have passed. The wall that Ana's people built has long outlasted her and history has been changed. The British Isles are still one with the European mainland and Doggerland has become a vibrant and rich land. So rich that it has drawn the attention of the Greeks. An invasion is mounted and soon Greek Biremes are grinding ashore on a coastline we never knew and the world will be changed for ever.Stephen Baxter's new series catapults forward from pre-history into the ancient world and charts a new and wonderful story for our world. This is a superb example of Baxter's belief that anything is possible for mankind - even making a new world."
  • "The prosperous people of Northland, a linear city hundreds of miles long created by the building of a Wall to hold back both the North Sea and the empires of the Bronze Age, contend with a threat from the East when decades of drought bring instability to the Eastern civilizations."@en

  • "An epic wall has been built to keep the sea out. And the history of the world has been changed. A superb alternate history from an SF master."@en
  • "Stephen Baxter's 'imaginative [and] bold' (Daily Mail, UK) Stone Spring drew readers into an alternate prehistoric scenario. Now, thousands of years have passed, and a wall that was built to hold back the sea must now hold back the advancing armies of a reviving Troy... Created by the building of the Wall, Northland has become a society of prosperous, literate, and self-sufficient people. Inhabited from end to end, the Wall is a linear city stretching for hundreds of miles, and a wonder of the world. For millennia, the Wall has also kept the growing empires of the Bronze Age at bay. But a new and turbulent age is dawning. For any wall, no matter how strong, can be breached'particularly from within.'"@en
