Shakespeare's Restless WorldBook - 2012
"Shakespeare's restless world is a wonderfully informative and enthralling exploration of William Shakespeare's era that accompanies the BBC Radio 4 series. A pivotal period in human history, the New World was discovered during Shakespeare's time and life was exhilaratingly uncertain. In this thrilling hardback, MacGregor looks at 20 objects from Shakespeare's life and times and uncovers the fascinating stories behind them all. Ranging from the grand (such as the hoard of gold coins that make up the Salcombe treasure) to the humble (worn garments of an unknown pedlar), the objects allow MacGregor to explore issues as diverse as piracy and Islam, Catholicism and disguise." --Publisher description.
