John Julius Norwich was born in 1929. After National Service, he took a degree in French and Russian at New College, Oxford. In 1952 he joined the Foreign Service, serving at the embassies in Belgrade and Beirut and with the British Delegation to the Disarmament Conference at Geneva. His publications include The Normans in Sicily; Mount Athos (with Reresby Sitwell); Sahara; The Architecture of Southern England; Glyndebourne; and A History of Venice. He is also the author of a three-volume history of the Byzantine Empire.

He was made a CVO in 1993.

Kritikerstimmen

'Lively and engaging... succeeds in conveying the complex texture and endless fascination of English history' -- David Cannadine, Financial Times 'Lavishly illustrated, beautifully designed, entertaining and witty' -- Guardian 'This beautifully written and sumptuously illustrated book sets out to tell the history of England through its landscape and architecture ... John Julius Norwich is the perfect guide to these national treasures. He's urbane, amusing and extraordinarily well-informed' -- Mail on Sunday 'An intriguing book, with an accessible style and lots of titbits from Emperor Hadrian's unusual beard to Huguenot origins of Brick Lane Mosque in London' -- The Times Books of the Year 'A highly readable tome ... each mini history is told with relish' -- Woman's Weekly 'Enthralling ... Take it on a "staycation' and be astonished afresh over architectural delights' -- Lady
