MAP#78: Edward II The Man with author Stephen Spinks

Edward_II_the_man_Stephen_SpinksToday’s lesson features a talk with historian and author Stephen Spinks. Stephen’s new book Edward II The Man: A Doomed Inheritance was recently published by Amberley Publishing. Edward II The Man is an in-depth biography of an often overlooked medieval king.

Stephen and I talk about his work with the National Trust, his writing and his new book. It’s a fantastic talk and I have a whole new outlook on Edward II, his reign and his fate. You can also read a Q&A post with Stephen about his book.

Connect with Stephen on his website Fourteenth Century Fiend (, Twitter: or Facebook:

You can buy his book from Amberley Publishing at or from Amazon USA or Amazon UK
