Mar 21, 2017 Sarah rated it liked it. Shelves: history. The letters need to be more clearly marked out on the pages. Many of them could do with more explanation, especially the older ones. Also it reads as if the author decided on a format then chose letters rather than allowing the letters to shape the book. This leads to some unusual selections.

their lives and loves through two thousand years of letters. Published 1995 by Constable in London.

Love-Letters Between a Nobleman and His Sister is an anonymously published three-volume roman à clef playing with events of the Monmouth Rebellion and exploring the genre of the epistolary novel. It has been attributed to Aphra Behn, but this attribution remains in dispute. The novel is "based loosely on an affair between Ford, Lord Grey of Werke, and his wife's sister, Lady Henrietta Berkeley, a scandal that broke in London in 1682".

And she adored women, falling passionately in love time and again. The explicit details of her affairs, recorded in code, shocked those who deciphered them. They changed the way lesbian history was viewed forever. I love, and only love, the fairer sex. The black-clad figure, striding confidently along the cobbled streets, was a familiar sight in Halifax. Dressed, even in summer, in thick, black clothes and boots, the young woman’s boyish frame drew whispers and abuse.

Two thousand years ago the Celts, who had been arriving from Europe, mixed with the peoples who were already in Britain Isles. The Roman province of Britannia covered most of the territory of present- day England and Wales. But inspite of their long occupation of Britain, there isn’t much they left behind. Even most of temples, roads and cities were later destroyed. But such place- names like Chester, Lancaster, Gloucester remind us of the Romans. The Romans influenced mainly the towns. In the country (where most people lived).

I've always enjoyed history books which cut across national boundaries and look at other connected areas . It's easy to romanticise ancient Egypt - getting so distracted by the beauty of the Pyramids that you forget the years of back-breaking slave labour which put them there, for instance.

I've always enjoyed history books which cut across national boundaries and look at other connected areas, so 'Atlantic' naturally appealed. The book covers the nature of the sea itself as well as history narrowly-defined. It's particularly good on mass travel. Wilkinson's book tells the story of what we know about ancient Egypt, but highlights the ruthlessness within that story as well.
