Well-researched, a good read

by Phil H on Jan 10, 2013

Antonia Fraser always writes beautifully and has clearly researched this subject thoroughly, She weighs up the various theories about the 'Powder Treason' and comes to her own conclusions, notably about the Monteagle letter which betrayed the plot. What was new for me was the complex background of the appalling position of Catholics in England in the early 1600s and the divisions among them.
