5.0 out of 5 stars A very interesting read, 22 May 2013
By 
This review is from: The Black Death in London (Paperback)
It's hard to believe that so little has been written about London's experience of the greatest catastrophe in its history. Mr Sloane has thankfully put this right in his beautifully written and impeccably researched book. I bought this wondering if it would be a little dry as it comes from the standpoint of an academic and an archaeologist, but no need to worry as it has a good style and is very readable. There is a considerable amount of information to back up his conclusions, and i like that. It means i don't need to cross reference other books to see if it's a balanced argument. I would imagine if you are studying the period this would be a brilliant reference. I wish i had had teachers like this at school. He doesn't seem to have written other books (apart from archaeological reports) but he probably should.
