The Time Travel Handbook: From the Eruption of Vesuvius to the Woodstock Festival

James Wyllie, Johnny Acton, David Goldblatt

Not many of us can claim to have dipped our handkerchiefs in Charles I’s blood after his execution, or to have watched Vesuvius erupt, but that’s about to change…

Wyllie, Acton & Goldblatt’s Time Travel Handbook offers eighteen exceptional trips to the past, transporting you back to the greatest spectacles in history. We offer the chance to join Henry VIII at the Field of the Cloth of Gold, and to march on Versailles with the revolutionary women of Paris. You can sail with Captain Cook to Tahiti and Australia, and spend time at Xanadu with Marco Polo and Kubla Khan. Or, closer to the present, you might accompany Charlie Parker at the birth of bebop or The Beatles in Hamburg, and take part in the VE Day celebrations in London or the Fall of the Berlin Wall.

The notable authors and time travel agents, Wyllie, Acton & Goldblatt are your guied to these and other unmissable events, charting the action as it will unfold, and advising on local customs, and what to wear, eat and drink, for the most authentic of experiences. Forget museums, forget history books - the only way to do history is to live it.
