TIME TRAVELLER'S GUIDE TO RESTORAAre you unlikely to get a fair trial in court The third volume in the series of Ian Mortimer's bestselling Time Traveller's Guides answers these crucial uestions and encourages us to reflect on the customs and practices of daily life This uniue guide not only teaches us about the seventeenth century but makes us look with fresh eyes at the modern world. This is a hugely enjoyable account of what life was like in England and to some extent in Scotland from 1660 to 1700 the years around the time of the restoration of the monarchy following the end of Puritanism and the Commonwealth Music and plays were back and fun again permitted The diaries of Samuel Pepys are a key source for this book which has clearly been intensively researched This makes for fascinating reading the medical treatment of the time might have been likely to kill than cure and the treatment of women and animals almost beggars belief but people lived their lives and things were gradually and in some ways rapidly improving as science supplanted unuestioning religious belief
