Reviews

'A fascinating, readable digest of social history which has "bestseller" written all over it.' -- Frank McLynn, Non-fiction read of the week, Sunday 'Entertaining and informative... Even more enjoyable than the account of the Magna Carta itself is the depiction of how we were, who we were and how many we were in the crucial year of 1215.' -- Antonia Fraser, Mail on Sunday 'Danziger and Gillingham have the knack of walking us right into history and making us feel at home...this is a hugely enjoyable window into medieval life.' -- Independent 'Danziger and Gillingham write clearly and accessibly to bring their slice of history to life...(they) admirably remind us of the chaotic soil in which the first glimmerings of British political freedom took root.' -- Simon Jenkins, The Sunday Times 'The disquisitions on education, medicine and agriculture are informative ... delightful.' -- Times Literary Supplement 'The authors entertain and inform with pertinent reflection...Life in the castles and the violent streets of London, the lure of the crusades and the dominant theme of rural life are all examined with panache.' -- Oxford Times '[A] superb account of the year of Magna Carta...fascinating descritpions of life at the time, and of the surrounding world.' -- Independent
