Glutter of Ravens: Warfare in the Age of Arthur Rules and Resources for Wargames in the Period AD400-AD700
"Rules and resources for wargames in the period AD400-AD700."
The name comes from a line in the Welsh epic Y Gododdin, "He glutted black ravens on the walls of the fort, but he was no Arthur."
Daniel Mersey, the designer, is a British archaeologist who wanted a set of miniature wargame rules that specifically captured the style of warfare in Dark Ages Britain in the period between the Roman departure and the coming of the Vikings; the age that was dominated by the legendary war-leader Arthur.
The armies represented in the rules are mostly the British kingdoms that arose after the Romans left Britannia. However, there are also the external enemies of these kingdoms: the Irish, the Picts, and the Saxons. There is also an army list for Romans.
