Great Tales from English History: The Truth About King Arthur, Lady Godiva, Richard the Lionheart, and More by Robert Lacey

From ancient times to the present day, the story of England has been laced with drama, intrigue, courage, and passion-a rich and vibrant narrative of heroes and villains, kings and rebels, artists and highwaymen, bishops and scientists.Now, in Great Tales from English History, Robert Lacey captures some of the most pivotal moments: the stories and extraordinary characters that helped shape a nation. This first volume begins in 7150 BC with the intriguing life and death of Cheddar Man and ends in 1381 with Wat Tyler and the Peasants Revolt.We meet the Greek navigator Pytheas, whose description of the woad-painted Celts yielded pretannik (the land of the painted people), which became the Latin word Britannia. We learn what the storytellers really meant when they described Lady Godivas nakedness.And we discover the truth behind the tales of King Arthur and the infamous Hobbehod, later to be known as Robin Hood.
