Book Description

How much do we really know, and what is the use of, studying history? There are so many ways to tell a story. If you read today’s newspapers each one will offer a slightly different version of yesterday’s events. You need to tease out the truth from all the different accounts because not everybody sees the same events in the same way. This detective work is what makes the study of the past such fun as new clues are uncovered. This illustrated history of the year 1066 beings together what we know about the people and events. There is an exceptional cast of characters and a remarkable set of events. Each page also explores how we know and discover facts about the past, and even owns up to the places where there is doubt and uncertainty. Trying to fill these gaps makes studying history such fun.

About the Author

Chas Jones has written a number of history books and has lately specialised in the events in Europe at the turn of the first millenium. He led the archeological project to locate the battle site at Fulford which was the first of three big battles in 1066 that ended Anglo-Saxon leadership in England. Before turning to history Chas wrote books about computers. Alongside his history books, Chas contributes fictional short stories which gives him the freedom to expand our understanding of medieval life. As a chemistry graduate, he works on some more obscure parts of ancient technology. His work on waterproofing has proved especially useful on his walks following ancestral footsteps. He is based in Oxford, England.
