    Imagine you could travel back to the 14th century. What would you see? What would you smell? More to the point, where are you going to stay? And what are you going to eat? Ian Mortimer shows us that the past is not just something to be studied; it is also something to be lived. He sets out to explain what life was like in the most immediate way, through taking you to the Middle Ages. The result is the most astonishing social history book you are ever likely to read: evolutionary in its concept, informative and entertaining in its detail.

    Marc-Andr? says: "Detailed, Interesting and Entertaining"
    "General information, very well presented"

    Where does The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the first non-fiction titles I've ever listened to, and I'm glad to say that I really enjoyed it! It was well put together and presented, and very well read.


    What about Jonathan Keeble’s performance did you like?

    There was a lot of humour in Keeble's performance, which was very appropriate to the style of the book. A "travel guide" to a particular time in history is an amusing idea, and Keeble presented the subject matter in an upbeat and appealing manner, all without discounting the seriousness of current issues of the day nor diminishing the daily reality of people living at the time.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have liked to hear more about the Peasant's Revolt near the end of the century.
