Very interesting, but not very exciting. Trying to tell you what it was like in the world of 1215.

A very entertaining piece of popular history, which explores the manners and customs of the 13th century around the time the famous Magna Carta was written.

Each chapter begins with a quotation from the Magna Carta, with the writing that follows explaining its context; for example the chapter on labouring in the countryside is headed by the Magna Carta's admonishment that a lord shall "keep his land stocked with ploughs and wainage such as the agricultural season demands."

A very enjoyable book, packed with fascinating insights into life in the middle ages.
