An Introduction To English Legal History This is my main reference book, although I have a slightly earlier (older) edition thanthis
1066 and All That The best (spoof) history book of them all, and surprisingly accurate.
Eleanor Of Aquitaine: By the Wrath of God, Queen of England Eleanor was the wife of Henry II. This book gives a wonderful feeling of the period and good insights into English history of the time
Henry II (The Yale English Monarchs Series)
England Under The Norman And Angevin Kings, 1075-1225 (New Oxford History Of England) A fantastic, erudite and elegantly written history which will take me up to the end of John's reign
Henry I: King of England and Duke of Normandy I became interested in Henry I while doing the Normans and bought this to become a bit better informed about him
