5) The Great English Pilgrimage, by Christopher Donaldson

A somewhat rambling book by an elderly vicar attempting to follow the steps of Augustine from Rome to Canterbury in 597, written in 1995 in the hopes that many would try and follow the same route two years later for the 1400th anniversary. Lots of circumstantial detail about the late sixth century in Italy, France and England - gosh, I would like to read a proper biography of Brunhilda! - retold in a gentle High Anglican kind of way. Quite charming, but not very deep.

I don't know if you know James Wallis, but he had a crack at following in the footsteps of people who went from somewhere in England to Canterbury, and wrote about it in a blog: 146 miles without a map
