The topics Harrison discusses are what he found to be useful information. The variety of things he chooses to write about is remarkable. It seems that the only things he left out were hygiene habits, the life of children, and recreation such as dance and music. He comments on the landscape and geography of England, laws and punishments, food and clothing, building furniture, the church structure, language, natural resources, and weights and measures -- amoung other topics. The author¿s bias is clear and gives great insight into Harrison¿s social class and the likely social understandings of many people of the time. I _highly_ recommend this book for anyone studying the time period scholastically or for those who have any interest int the time peirod at all. It is an invaluable resource.
