it was amazing
bookshelves: history

My knowledge of history is sparse - when i was at school it was kings and dates between 45BC and 1603. When we got to 1603 we started again. As a result my knowledge of world history is poor and the events after 1603 a mystery. Schama has, with his usual clarity, lightened some of my darkness and I have to thank him for it. Unlike many historians he is clear and non-judgemental in his writing which allows me to form my own opinions about events and to see parallels in the present day.
