After writing an exciting biography of London and its great river, the Thames, Peter Ackroyd now turns to England itself.This first volume of six takes us from the time England was first settled, more than 15,000 years after the death in 1509 of the first monarch Tudor, King Henry VII.In the Foundation, Ackroyd takes us from the Neolithic, from England, we can’t see him in the most attractive sight – a stirrup found in a tomb, some seeds at the bottom of a bowl in the long period of Roman domination; from the Dark Ages onwards, when England was invaded by a relentless tide of the Angles, the Saxons and the Jutes.With his talent for evoking time and place, he tells the well-known story of King King succeeding king rich in prose, with a lot of intuition, and some surprising details.The food we ate, the clothes we wore, the pain we endured, even the jokes we hear are all located here, too much.
