    Description: This is an examination of the lives of women in England from the coming of the Anglo- Saxons and their conversion to Christianity up to the eve of the Reformation. It looks at women from all social classes - aristocrats townswomen and peasants - and their contributions to the worlds of work and faith literature and learning as well as sex and marriage child-care and education. It considers how particular events could change the roles women played - whether religious (the conversion to Christianity) political (the Norman Conquest) or demographic (the Black Death).

Description: Was medieval England full of knights on horseback rescuing fainting damsels in distress? Were the Middle Ages mired in superstition and ignorance? Why does nobody ever mention King Louis the First and Last? And of course those key questions: which monks were forbidden the delights of donning underpants...and did outlaws never wear trousers? Terry Jones and Alan Ereira are your guides to this most misrepresented and misunderstood period and they point you to things that will surprise and provoke. Did you know for example that medieval people didn't think the world was flat? That was a total fabrication by an American journalist in the 19th century. Did you know that they didn't burn witches in the Middle Ages? That was a refinement of the so-called Renaissance. In fact medieval kings weren't necessarily merciless tyrants and peasants entertained at home using French pottery and fine wine. Terry Jones' Medieval Lives reveals Medieval Britain as you have never seen it before - a vibrant society teeming with individuality intrigue and innovation. ' Jones laces the latest academic research with his own increasingly avuncular humour. Key Features:224 pages Paperback First Published in 2007
