How Not to Visit 15th Century EnglandBook - 2012 | First edition.
'Tis time to visit late medieval England. English researchers and laborers have worked hard on castles, abbeys, manors, churches, guild halls, and even barns to show modern visitors what they were like. Men (mostly), in armor, bring death to life re-enacting battles on actual battle fields. Centuries old how-to manuals have enabled jousters to revive that extreme sport. (Would you like to hire a tournament?)Lila Rhodes seized the moment to tour 15th century England. After 29 years of verbal exploration into the era, this 'moment' took a year of preparation, studying maps and websites. She downloaded lists of attractions in each county and visited many castles' websites. (Yes, castles have websites.) During spring 2012, she visited eleven counties in England-without driving. After dusting herself off from an assortment of misadventures, she now offers advice on How not to Visit 15th Century England. This love child of a travel guidebook and a memoir includes names of places to explore and groups to contact, for creating a time travel moment.
