What Life Was Like at the Turn of the First Millennium.

Had enough of this Millennium? Ever wondered what life was like at the turn of the first one? Well,there was no spinach, no sugar and no iron, but there were brain surgeons and property developers, medieval super-glue and viagra, and even the occasional gossip columnist.

Drawing on the Julius Work Calendar, a little-known but sharply observed document from the period, along with interviews with top historians and archaeologists, 'The Year 1000' reveals such wonderfully unexpected details, bringing this distant world to vivid life.

Concluding as the shadow of the millennium descends across England and Christendom, while prophets of doom predict the end of the world, 'The Year 1000' notes portents of the future, and examines the human and social ingredients that were to make for the success of the next thousand years.
