Description


If you want to discover the enthralling history of medieval england, then keep reading...

Knights, monks, kings, plague, war, vikings, revolts, and so much more appear in the six hundred or so years known as the medieval period of english history. Our culture has romanticized many of these elements, and the middle ages has become full of stereotypes and tropes that appear again and again in movies, books, and even in our imaginations. But what was it really like?

Inside you will read about...

  • Early middle ages
  • Swapping the old with the old
  • All the lords and ladies
  • Bow down to a realm divided
  • "ashes, ashes, we all fall down "
  • A micro-organism wins the last war


This history takes us through the rise and fall of empires, papacies, caliphates and kingdoms; through the violence and death of the crusades, viking raids, the hundred years war and the plague; to the curious practices of monks, martyrs and iconoclasts. We'll see how the foundations of the modern west were established, influencing our art, cultures, religious practices and ways of thinking. And we'll explore the lives of those seen as 'other' - women, jews, homosexuals, lepers, sex workers and heretics.
