The Adkins’ book

A revealing and spirited account of life ashore in Kydd’s day.

Following on from their fascinating accounts of Jack Tar at sea, Roy and Lesley Adkins vividly portray fascinating aspects of the daily lives of ordinary people in Georgian England.

The book is eminently readable from cover to cover, or can be dipped into from time to time.

To confess, I couldn’t leave it behind and took it on my location research trip to France!

One Comment on “BookPick: Jane Austen’s England

  1. A great read! Similar to an earlier book called “What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew” .. by Daniel Pool. Both are excellent insight into what late 18th and early 19th century life was like in Britain.
