With an eye for evocative detail, Ackroyd tells the story of England from prehistory, through the invasions of Romans, Vikings, Saxons and Norman French, and the Middle Ages, up to the death of Henry VII in 1509. This engaging account of our society’s earliest foundations punctuates familiar stories of kings and battles with vivid descriptions of the lives of ordinary people, from their homes, food and sense of humour to their swift and often savage approach to crime and punishment.
