Synopsis

Do you know your Kings and Queens of England by heart? Can you tell your Ethelred from your Ethelbert? Your Marcia from your Matilda?



Well, passionate educator Mr Gwynne is back - and this time he is taking on the entirety of British history - so you will never be in the dark again. Within the pages of this little gem - bursting with our small island's rich past - he teaches us the history of England through her remarkable monarchs.



It is Mr Gwynne's belief that a certain amount of what you might read in other history books may well be wrong. It is his aim to show you why.



Concise, thorough and utterly fascinating, this is the perfect book to be enjoyed by young and old, to be read at a time when, for many, harking back to our rich past seems much more preferable than living in the dreary present.



And when it comes to the benefits of education, Mr Gwynne is never wrong!

Mr Gwynne is the much loved and passionate educator who is on a crusade. He believes in old-fashioned values, that the modern school system is hopeless - and that keen and close study is the only way to become an enlightened and better person. Now living in County Wexford, Ireland, and in his 70s, N M Gwynne was formerly a successful businessman in London and Australia. On retirement in the 1980s, he took up teaching and soon found that his traditional methods, universal up to the 1960s and refined and perfected century after century up till then, had become all but unique. Subjects he has been teaching - in classrooms, in lecture halls, and nowadays mostly privately - include English, Latin, Greek, French, German, mathematics, history, classical philosophy, natural medicine, the elements of music, and "How to start up and run your own business". He has taught all over the world and thanks to the internet and Skype, he has sometimes found himself, at different times in a single day, teaching as far apart as India, Europe and western USA.
