A good Medieval book
« on: August 16, 2018, 11:09:42 PM »
A time travelers guide to medieval England by Ian Mortimer is a great book. I love all things medieval so if there are other books out there pertaining to all things medieval or renaissance please write back and let me know.
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are---
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

I also have the book by the same author, "The Time Travellers Guide to Elizabethan England."  I haven't read it yet, but I did read the same one as you did and  loved it.

There is a novel, The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis, about the Black Plague in the 1400's.  Loved, loved, loved it.  Also, I read Year of Wonders, by a different author, also about the plague.  Pretty good, too.

Thanks Lady Renee for the book suggestions . The black plague has always intrigued me so on my next visit to B&N I will see if they have the books you mentioned. Life in a medieval castle by Frances Gies was pretty good. I love castles too so anything on them is great.
