Title:The Movers and Shakers of Medieval England - A Who's Who of History's Most Gifted, Famous and Influential People
The Middle Ages were a perilous period in British history - and these are the towering figures who helped shape society during that crucial, and somewhat brutal, stage. They're the artists, muses, inspired inventors, and literary legends who endured umpteen decades of harsh living, deadly disease, rats, terrifying capital punishments, and squalor... and still managed to shine through with their reputations intact. These fiery pages will introduce the checkered life and mysterious death of Geoffrey Chaucer, the woman who saw 16 visions of Christ as she lay ill, the illuminator of The Lindisfarne Gospels, and the inventor of Ockham's Razor... which trims ideas, rather than hair!...
