'... magic little book ...' The Week

Book Description

A Handbook of Dates provides in clear, user-friendly form, tables which allow the calculation of the dates (and days) on which historical events have fallen or will fall, from AD 500 to 2100. It includes lists of Easter dates, saints' days, popes, rulers of England and the Roman calendar. In this updated and expanded edition, Michael Jones has edited or revised the explanatory sections and added new tables, for example on old and new style dates and Celtic Easter. A Handbook of Dates is an unrivalled reference tool for historians.

I used to do a lot of research and reading old medieval documents. This book is amazing as it would tell me the dates correctly by the kings. It's a bit hard to use at first, but once you get used to it, it works really well.
