Recommended for fans of Ben Kane, Michael Jecks and Bernard Cornwell.

'An excellent collection of tales drawing from different points of the ten centuries of medieval history, and encompassing a wide selection of characters. Both well known and less so. From the immediacy and excitement of a joust gone wrong to struggles crossing the Channel only to find oneself unwelcome on making landfall, this anthology is a series of snapshots of medieval life and history. A history reader’s buffet which I devoured in a single sitting.'
J.A. Ironside, author of The King's Knight
