TOP 500 REVIEWERon 20 January 2014
Far from being brief, this is a detailed and highly readable account of what life was like in medieval England. It really brings the period to life. Based on childhood teaching, I'd always considered this era to be rather bleak. Both physically and spiritually. However, recent forays have changed my view and this book in particular gives a real feel for what life was like at that time. So many accounts focus on the monarchs and court, but I'm interested in day to day life for the ordinary citizen.

Here, we glimpse that reality. With entertaining accounts covering a diverse and often amusing range of 'events', the reader is drawn back more than 600 years. I really enjoyed this book which for the greater part read more like a novel than a factual account. A terrific introduction and overview of this pivotal period.
