This book gives a comprehensive and enjoyable survey of England's past from prehistory right through to the present. All the major periods of English history are dealt with, including the Roman occupation, the invasions of the Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, and Normans, and the power struggles of the medieval kings. In the 20th century the Empire was transformed into the Commonwealth; two victorious, but costly, World Wars were fought; the Welfare State was established; and membership in the European Community was finally achieved.

The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there... 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.

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.

First published in 1932, this book was written primarily for children in the middle and upper forms of public and secondary schools. Arranged chronologically, excepting the separate discussion of economic and constitutional issues, the material is broadly viewed from an international perspective, and political history is subordinated to social history. Whilst the text was written to provide a resource for the School Certificate or equivalent examinations, it does not lose sight of the narrative aspect of history and remains highly readable. Extensive quotations from contemporary sources and renowned historians are included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in British history, historiography, or the education system.
