Description
The past is a foreign country, and a time machine has just transported you back into the 14th century. What do you see? What do you wear? How do you earn a living and what are you paid? What sort of food will you be offered by a peasant or a monk or a lord? And more important, where will you stay? This is your guidebook. Ian Mortimer writes about medieval English history not as something that happened but rather as something that is happening, lending a vivid sense of life there and providing answers to questions typically ignored by traditional historians. You will learn how to greet people on the street, what to use as toilet paper, why a physician might want to taste your blood, and how to know whether you are coming down with leprosy.

"Chock-full of surprises, this is exceptional social history, compellingly told; there should be 'travel books' like this for every century. Start reading, and you won't want to stop."Library Journal
