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.
