Publisher's Summary

Presented by award-winning children's writer Michael Morpurgo, this genuinely ground-breaking history of British childhood from the year 1000 to the present explores, through a wide and colourful range of primary sources, how the idea of childhood has been constantly reinvented down through the centuries, and why the role of children in society continues to obsess us today.

Fascinating and thought-provoking, this audiobook will appeal to parents, grandparents, and anyone who has ever been a child.

Excellent

I have listened to this several times, it's fascinating and very well presented. I would recommend it to anyone interested in history.
