Reading this book made me feel like I was an uppermiddle class child in the 1800's being lectured by a tutor, partially because of sentences like "But this Agrarian Law was never forgotten, and you must remember what is was, for we shall hear of it again."

Aside from that, the material presented was easy to follow and interesting.

I've got Hannibal and Hadrian, Caesar and Augustus all in order, just not in this sentence.

Mandell Creighton (1843-1901) was a famous historian and the first editor of the English Historical Revue. His intelligence and energy made an impression upon everyone he met. Admired by Queen Victoria, only his untimely death stopped him becoming Archbishop of Canterbury. His wife Louise was a prolific historian in her own right.
