This review is from: Foundation: A History of England Volume I (History of England Vol 1) (Hardcover)
This is a good book that brings the period to life without delving in to the boring minutiae. Ackroyd can write and he brings the period in question to life. The mix of evidence sources and records also is a real strength. A book to keep , not give away.
