4.0 out of 5 stars Memories Of Times Past., 24 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have ancestors who lived in these places & found the photos interesting to give a general view of the area. There was nothing really specific to my family however, but it was an introduction to the area which made me want to visit myself. A worthwhile purchase.


The Last Days of Richard III and the Fate of his DNA: The Book that Inspired the Dig
The Last Days of Richard III and the Fate of his DNA: The Book that Inspired the Dig
by John Ashdown-Hill
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.48

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Angle on Richard III., 14 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent account of what the title says, Richard III from a different angle than usual. The author's style is easy to read yet obviously scholarly, the chapters are quite short and there are copious notes & references to historical documents & the author's other biographical works. This is an excellent read for those interested in the often-maligned King, by a historian who writes a balanced account but refers to Henry 'Tudor' throughout. While reading the book I felt I was getting closer to him and his world, and learning about his daily life during the last few months, as the author says 'without hindsight'. I personally have always been on Richard's side, and this book did nothing to change my mind; I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Domingo in Lighter Mood, 28 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Domingo in his native tongue, singing songs not operatic arias. An appealing disc in lighter mood, he is obviously enjoying himself going back to his roots. It is always good to hear a singer in his native tongue, so enjoy this and think of heat & sunny skies!

3.0 out of 5 stars Visually, A Very Modern Interpretation, 28 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this mainly to see Domingo as the leading baritone character, rather than the tenor, which he has sung for years.( I have his 1978 traditional DVD version conducted by Karajan) The action is set in a 'cube' and the stage seems small, the female characters have very exaggerated make-up which is fine for Azucena, to emphasise her madness. Inez looks & acts like a painted doll, Leonora is brilliant as you would expect from Netrebko. Manrico is adequate- but he has got the high C.I wondered at the soldiers wearing top hats, but I was impressed by the voice of Marina Prudenskaya, suitably intense as Azucena, but I thought Domingo rather lacklustre. I have two problems with Part 4: why does Leonora stab herself (and later sing about taking poison?) and she does it too soon, long before the Count appears on the scene. The panels of the cube were used to good effect in different scenes, for example the blood & the symbols of death. Overall, I shall call this an interesting modern interpretation, but I admit to preferring a traditional staging, especially for stories set in the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shedding Light on the Dark Ages, 13 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent series, long missed! Thoroughly enjoyed watching it again after all these years, Michael Wood at the start of his TV career telling us about lesser-known historical figures from the fairly distant past, all filmed on location. Most people probably know a little about Boudica, Arthur and William the Conqueror, but these episodes fill in the gaps and we also learn about Eric Bloodaxe, Ethelred- not Unready but ill-advised, Alfred, Offa and Athelstan. Definitely recommended for history-lovers.
