Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Martyn Whittock shines a light on the past, as he brings the Middle Ages vividly to life and allows readers to glimpse eleventh-century rural society. Topics include Roger “the Raker” who drowned in his own sewage, a “merman” imprisoned in Orford Castle, the sufferings of the Jews of Bristol, and more. Each reveals the extraordinary diversity of medieval society. Through these characters and events—and using the latest discoveries and research—the dynamic and engaging panorama of medieval England is revealed.
