The Year Book Summary and Study Guide. Robert Lacey, Danny Danziger Booklist Robert Lacey, Danny Danziger Message Board. Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Year ; A very accurate study of what life was like at the turn of the first millennium in England. Very readable. Publisher's Summary The Year is a vivid evocation of how English people lived a thousand years ago - no spinach, sugar or Caesarean operations in which the mother had any chance of survival, but a world that knew brain surgeons, property developers and, yes, even the occasional gossip columnist.

The book’s title is misleading in that the content does not focus exclusively on the year ; however, this doesn’t mean it’s in any way a let-down.

This short history of Anglo-Saxon times, which predominantly covers the 10th century, is concise and engaging. It features some interesting facts and amusing anecdotes/5(39).

Lacey and Danziger have based the book on a thousand year old document called the Julius Work Calendar. The first chapter of The Year describes the technology used to create such documents and how it has been preserved over the centuries.
