The Tudors: The Kings And Queens Of Englands Golden Age by Jane Bingham

Decent book for a Tudor Enthusiast like myself or anyone who wants to learn about that era in an abridged way. Its a quick read that just gives the main gist of each of the monarchs, so dont expect it to go full on encyclopedia.

My only problem with this book is the timeline and how the events are arranged. The monarchs are arranged in order but the events within each reign is not. The narrative goes back and forth which can seem a bit messy and confusing at times. I think the author could have done a bit better in the editing of her paragraphs. But other than that, it was a good book.

Pages displaying the alphabet and religious material were attached to wooden boards and covered with a transparent sheet of cow horn hence the name.
