Love the focus on everyday lives - and glad to be living today instead
Verified purchase
Another great study in humanity by Tony Robinson. I study history quite a bit and love to learn more about the adventures of the human race. Mostly, history focuses on spectacular deeds by mythical people. But this study focuses on what ordinary lives were like in extraordinary times. It helps me to really appreciate my life today when I take the time to understand the nitty gritty of life in times past. This series does that very very well. Thanks Tony for another splendid piece of work.

These People Knew The Meaning Of The Word "Tough!"

This series is well worth the purchase price! Even if you're acquainted with the nation's history and familiar with the rich and famous figures, you may not have really understood the daily life and struggles of the general populace. Lots of these tales are sad and difficult to watch, but at least the ordinary people are remembered and understood. This is entertaining and educational, and presents a balanced view of the past events which shaped our present day.
