The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England Author Interview

The author of The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England, Ian Mortimer, has been interviewed on the spiegel.de website.  If you are unfamiliar with this book and you run a Medieval Fantasy tabletop roleplaying setting, you should give it a look.  Read the interview here and check out this book blurb-
A time machine has just transported you back to the fourteenth century. What do you see? How do you dress? How do you earn a living and how much are you paid? What sort of food will you be offered by a peasant or a monk or a lord? And more important, where will you stay?
The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England is not your typical look at a historical period. This radical new approach shows us that the past is not just something to be studied; it is also something to be lived. All facets of everyday life in this fascinating period are revealed, from the horrors of the plague and war to the ridiculous excesses of roasted larks and medieval haute couture.
