Bestselling and award-winning historian Dr Ian Mortimer takes a whirlwind tour of the last 10 centuries of Western history to find out which period saw the most change. He travels from a time when there was a good chance your village would be burned down by invaders and the recommended cure for cancer was dried human dung to a time when explorers sailed into the unknown and civilisations came into conflict on an epic scale. And he explains what lessons we can learn from this journey and why it matters to us.

Mortimer is author of the bestselling The Time Traveller’s Guide to Medieval England and The Time Traveller’s Guide to Elizabethan England, as well as four critically acclaimed medieval biographies. He is a fellow of the Royal Historical Society and winner of the Alexander Prize for his work on the social history of medicine.
