About the book

Have you ever wondered about Edgar Ætheling, the fourteen-year-old who took on William the Conqueror? Or about the woeful collapse of the Angevin Empire under King John? Or what about Eleanor Cobham, a noblewoman found guilty of witchcraft for predicting the death of the King?

Join Matthew Lewis and the creators of 
History Hit on a guided tour spanning more than five centuries of English medieval history and witness spectacular changes in military, political and economic spheres. At home and overseas, England's status and identity was in constant flux, and yet through it all, the nation withstood the turmoil of everything from the 9th century attack of the Great Heathen Army to the year of three kings in 1483 - just.

From the bit before 1066 - which matters just as much! - through to the Wars of the Roses, 
The History Hit Guide to Medieval England charts the extraordinary development of a young nation that went on to emerge as a global superpower.
