A history book in its own right, 1066 And All That is an uproarious satire on the contemporary style of history teaching in English schools, debunking ‘the more bombastic claims of drum-and-trumpet history’. An ironic retalling of English history, the book purports to contain ‘all the History you can remember’, revealing how our memory of historical events is none other than our own interpretation and often confused recollection.
