Format: Hardcover
This book is a detailed, informative and scholarly treatment of the Bigod family. It is very well documented. The author makes an effort to demonstrate the culture of the thirteenth century.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A sad disappointment. A lot of work has gone into this but it reads like a bad PhD thesis. There is no life or character given to the two Roger Bigods who figure in this story...and it isn't really a story. And by god, the Bigods need their fabulous story telling.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was a disappointing purchase and read. One can appreciate that a lot of research has gone into the collection of material. There are endless statistics but neither Roger nor Hugh Bigod come to life as characters. In fact Roger Bigod has a greater presence in Marc Morris's very worthwhile tome on Edward I 'A great and terrible King'. I cannot recommend this volume, particularly at the price demanded.
