Henry III (Penguin Monarchs): A Simple and God-Fearing King
Henry III (Penguin Monarchs): A Simple and God-Fearing King
by Stephen Church
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.08

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but to the point, 25 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This little book provides a scholarly analysis of the reign of Henry the third. Despite its brevity it provides an astute analysis of a relatively unknown king. Recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars this film offers poor entertainment value, 6 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The plot does not live up to the star billing of the actors. Based on the dysfunctional Plantaganet family of Henry II, this film offers poor entertainment value. Avoid.

Price: £128.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, a pen that punches above its weight., 25 Oct. 2016
I would endorse the review of Tremblox. This is a pen which I purchased for £129.00p but which performs like a far more expensive pen. It feels great in the hand ( this is the first time that I have used a pen of this distinctive shape) and I found it easy to write with. If I wanted to write in a fine hand I would probably use another much more expensive pen, as the nib is firm but, not being of gold will not flex.Nevertheless for everyday writing - and that is to say most of the time - this pen is the one I reach for. it is excellent value at the price.

Guided by a Stone-mason: Exploring the Cathedrals. Abbeys and Churches of Britain by Thomas Maude ( 2010 ) Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A simple guide to a complex subject, 20 Oct. 2014
This is a superb guide to cathedral architecture, it expresses in simple and easy to understand terms the more complex principles of church architecture. It has made church architecture come alive for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Prefer the Lonely Planet Guide, 10 Aug. 2014
I found the Lonely Planet Guide much more readable and concise - I really struggled to fond the information I needed in this guide. it was there - just not easy to find. I ended up buying the Lonely planet guide as well.

Imprisonment in Medieval England
Imprisonment in Medieval England
by Ralph B. Pugh
Edition: Paperback
Price: £40.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the seminal work on the rarely considered but important topic of imprisonment in medieval times. The research that has gone into producing this work is simply huge. The author is a respected academic writer and unafraid of drawing conclusions from his research.
This book is a must for anyone interested in this topic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well researched a nd woth a read., 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author has clearly done a lot of research to produce a fine work. Perhaps it is overly heavily weighted towards churches in the south and east of England, and it is not intended to be light reading. However as a roof tour guide in a cathedral I found this book to be thought provoking and very well worth a read.
