2014 Medieval Year in Review: Books

Dan Jones Wars of the Roses2014 was another great year for Medieval books, both non-fiction and historical fiction. Kngihts, Kings, Vikings and of course the Plantagenets!

We were honored to talk to several best selling authors this year. One of my all time favorite hisotrical fiction authors and an relative newcomer to the non-fiction world.

In September best selling author of over 50, yes 50, books Bernard Cornwell joined us for a talk about his career and his latest book, The Empty Throne.

In October the acclaimed author behind The Plantagenets, Dan Jones, sat down to talk about the sequel, Hollow Crown. Or as it’s known in the US, Wars of the Roses: The Fall of the Plantagenets and the Rise of the Tudors.

We talked to Sharon Newman and her book Defending the City of God. Toward the end of the year we talked to Ian Macgill about his book The Rhyme of King Harold.

Other medieval books published in 2014 include:

  • The Normans: From Raiders to Kings
  • The Greatest Knight: The Remarkable Life of William Marshal, the Power Behind Five English Thrones
  • The Age of the Vikings
  • Digging for Richard III: The Search for the Lost King
  • Elizabeth of York: A Tudor Queen and Her World
