About

Records the daily life of the English people from the Norman Conquest to the post-World War II period, in a narrative including vignettes on plagues, witchhunts, religion, nobleman, sports, and music. 

Numerous colour plates throughout. Essential for most libraries.

This work is a striking departure from the earlier efforts of Hibbert, one of England's best-known popular historians. In it he undertakes, on a grand scale not really approached since G. M. Trevelyan's classic English Social History, an overview of the rich fabric of the lives of common folk. The subject is a fascinating one, and on the whole Hibbert does it justice. There should be more on population trends and demography and certainly some maps are needed; but against these shortcomings stand readable prose, excellent treatment of subjects like dress and sex, and considerable research in printed sources.
