The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval EnglandAudiobook on MP3 CD - 2009
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. Being a guidebook, many questions are answered which do not normally occur in traditional history books. How do you greet people in the street? What should you use for toilet paper? How fast -- and how safely -- can you travel? Why might a physician want to taste your blood? And how do you test to see if you are going down with the plague.
