Lady Godiva talk

<< < (2/2)

If you can get hold of a copy of Michael Wood’s “In Search of England: journeys into England’s Past”, you will find he discusses the Norman Yoke at length. It must have been published last century though(!) as I remember it was the book I was reading as the millennium dawned!

It was first published in 1999. His story of being summoned as a schoolboy to the House of Lords for a dreadful sounding lunch with Montgomery of Alamein is most entertaining. I must have been reading it in 2003, as my bookmark was an invitation to the Gulf Air Executive Lounge in Dubai in March that year.
