    Product Information

    Set in the Dark Ages, Saints & Sinners contains shocking true tales of royalty, aristocrats and religious figures behaving very badly indeed.  In fact their lives would not be out of place in today’s reality TV shows or modern politics and the incidents they are involved in… well, truth really is stranger than fiction - even fiction as entertaining as the recent Game of Thrones and Vikings series.

    So climb on board as we set off to explore some of the more weird, obscure and WTF corners of English history. These are tales of murder, mayhem, treason, incest and adultery in which we’ll encounter numerous saints, eight English kings who met gruesome, premature deaths, five scheming English queens who put the 'sex' back into Wessex, and the mother of all wicked stepmothers. You'll be amazed, or horrified, or appalled. Or all three!
