Description - The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England by Ian Mortimer
Discover an original, entertaining and illuminating guide to a completely different world- England in the Middle Ages.
Imagine you could travel back to the fourteenth century. What would you see, and hear, and smell? Where would you stay? What are you going to eat? And how are you going to test to see if you are going down with the plague?
In The Time Traveller's Guide Ian Mortimer's radical new approach turns our entire understanding of history upside down. History is not just something to be studied; it is also something to be lived, whether that's the life of a peasant or a lord. The result is perhaps the most astonishing history book you are ever likely to read; as revolutionary as it is informative, as entertaining as it is startling.
'Ian Mortimer is the most remarkable medieval historian of our time' The Times
'After The Canterbury Tales this has to be the most entertaining book ever written about the middle ages' Guardian
