With this book Dr Mortimer once again takes his readers into a fascinating era of English history In doing so he relates things most readers would not see in a normal history book In this entry into his Time Travelers Guide series the author looks at Restoration England The time covered in this narrative is 1662 to roughly 1700 As with the other books in this series the format is a literally a travel guide to the period The author looks at almost every aspect of everyday life that a reader could imagine In telling the reader what life was like the author looks at what the people ate where they lived how they dressed from the skin out how they handled sickness what they did for entertainment how they worshipped and myriad of other thingsIn addition to everyday life Dr Mortimer also looks at how some of the major events of the time affected the lives of those living in the era Some of those events includes but are not limited to the Great Fire of London the outbreak of Bubonic Plague at almost the same time and the drift of the monarchy towards CatholicismIn his discussion of the Great Fire the author uses the diaries of Samuel Pepys as a guide He follows the fire from its discovery through to the reconstruction of London after the embers had finally gone out He opines on how London was built contributed to the spread of the fire Finally he looks as how the fire gave Charles II and his great architect Christopher Wren the chance to remake the street layout and modernize the CityIn looking at the other major disaster to befall London the outbreak of Bubonic Plague the author takes the opportunity to look at the medical practices of the day Some of the topics include the differences in a physician and a surgeon they were not the same thing The way the author put it the physician took care of the inside and the surgeon the outside The author also looks at what it took to become either a physician or a surgeon and why by the end of the era the two professions were starting to meld into oneOne of the aspects I enjoy about this series in Dr Mortimer s look at the diet of the period he is writing about and just how different their diets were from ours One of the aspects of diet that really stood out for me was the literal tooth to tail consumption of livestock Some of the delicacies that would sometimes grace a well to dowealthy persons table included Calf s head a literal Calf s head cows udders along with all the various organ meats One other morsel that caught my attention was that Carp was considered a high status fish and was one of most expensive fish on a menu A single fish cost as much a laboror s monthly wage 20 Shillings I don t know about other parts of the world but where I live if you are unfortunate enough to reel in a carp you throw it back It is considered a trash fishIn looking a law enforcement the author looks at the shear amount of crimes that were punished by the death penalty Almost every crime was subject to it even some that we in the modern world would consider relatively mild He also discusses the difference in punishment for men and women A man was much likely to be hanged or beheaded a woman to be burnt at the stake The author also looks at domestic abuse and the indifference and almost encouragement of it that permeated societyOne of the final topics that I want to mention is Dr Mortimer s look at religion and the role it played Even after the excesses of the Commonwealth and the Puritans people as a whole were genuinely devout Protestants and had a deep fear of Roman Catholicism The author looks at how this played out in the reign of James II a Roman Catholic as he eased restrictions on Catholicism in England and Scotland It ultimately cost him his throne and Parliament invited his sister Mary and her husband William of Orange to become co monarchsTo sum it all up this is a very readable occasionally funny and very well researched look at Britain in the late 17th century I would give this 425 stars if GR allowed so I ve rounded down
