The Time Traveller’s Guide to Restoration Britain
by Ian Mortimer
This site has a number of members whose depth of knowledge and willingness to share insights gives us a privileged inside track on the diaries and their times. I imagine, however, that there are also lots of members like myself who have an outline grasp of 17th Century politics and literature but would like to understand more of what it was like to live through that tumultuous period and don’t quite know where to start. This book may help.
