The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England: A Handbook for Visitors to the Fourteenth Century (eBook)Ian Mortimer
The past is a foreign country: this is your guidebook. Imagine you could get into a time machine and travel back to the fourteenth century. What would you see? What would you smell? More to the point, where are you going to stay? Should you go to a castle or a monastic guesthouse? And what are you going to eat? What sort of food are you going to be offered by a peasant or a monk or a lord? This is the most astonishing social history book you are ever likely to read: revolutionary in its concept, informative and entertaining in its detail, and startling for its portrayal of humanity in an age of violence, exuberance and fear. BRAIN SHOTS: the byte-sized guide to a completely different world: England in the Middle Ages
