This review is from: The Time-traveller's Guide to Medieval England: A Handbook for Visitors to the Fourteenth Century (Hardcover)
At school I hated history mainly because it was learning boring dates and events.
This book changes all of that; it tells me what I wanted to know in an easy to read and extremely enjoyable way.
What will I see in a 14th Century street, who will I see, what des it smell like, what will I eat, how do I address people I meet? All of this and more is covered in this excellent book. Each chapter deals with a different aspect of the period such as the city, the town, the village etc. Very clear and very informative; ideal for casual interest, school pupils, university history reading and so on.
I won't go into the details because that would simply spoil things for you so I suggest you get this book and be transported back some 700 years.
It simply brings history to life.
