A comic satire upon textbook history squeezing in all the history you can remember from the Olden Days and dashing Queen Woadicea to the reigns of the Eggkings (Eggberd, Eggbreth and Eggforth, and their mysterious Eggdeath), from the dreadful story of Stephen and his aunt Matilda to the Magna Charter, from the six burglars of Calais to the disillusion of the monasteries and the life of Broody Mary, from William and Mary, when England was ruled by an orange, to the Boston Tea-Party and the annoying confusion between Napoleon and Nelson, to the Peace to end all Peace. This light-hearted look at England and history provides a colorful commentary for all those with a curiosity for the past.

"...it's certainly the funniest book I ever read as a child and I read it again recently and I just couldn't believe how funny it still is ... I love it ... there's a sweetness about it I think which is... it's almost innocent - the pleasure they take just in the word play, and the messing around with what's established fact, is absolutely delightful..." Ian Hislop, A Good Read, BBC Radio 4* "1066 and All That is the ... greatest historical pastiche in English..." Professor Robert Bartlett, Wardlaw Professor of Medieval History, St Andrew's University The Daily Telegraph * "...1066 and All That it is an hilarious swipe at history the way it used to be taught... every trope of history teaching is brilliantly sent up..." John Sessions, With Great Pleasure, BBC Radio 4*
