Extremely informative work.

It is largely based on advances in archeology this history significantly expands our knowledge of Middle Ages, culture and contributions. Somewhat long and detailed and altogether a very good stuff.

What a great work by the author.

This audiobook delivers an exhaustive account of the time and players that resulted in the Magna Carta but doesn't prevent there like most history works. It walks the different proofs and revisions of the work through the centuries and how it was instrumental over and over again in English history.

I’m a big history buff

Another revolutionary transformation in the country happened when these Germanic settlers, and created monasteries and churches. The invading Vikings, seeking riches, raided these monasteries repeatedly.

Good Details

I love these sweet historical books. If you want an exhaustive history lesson this may not be for you. I like the overviews of the period and then you can explore further detailed information if so inclined.

England in the Middle Ages

This is an excellent audible. I admit I was largely unaware of the ongoing matter of the Magna Carta. I feel that I understand the world a little better knowing the past and essence of the Magna Carta.

The audiobook on the Magna Carta was indeed fascinating. Outside of knowing it was an essential audible, written during the Middle Ages, I virtually knew nothing else about it.

It's brief and pointed to the Middle Ages

The audiobook looked more like a timeline of History of the Medieval period with dates and names of rulers. So much going on it was challenging to keep up with who was who and where they are from.

A good insight in Medieval England

It's an outline and pretty dry very factual. Just what I needed because it's brief and tapered. It went further than one would expect it too.

Does its job.

This audiobook details the effort and bloodshed that shaped England in it's early days from a Roman region to a harmonious kingdom. Good content overall but the length compel me post four stars.
