Chris is editing Adam Knott's extensive work on 'A History of English - In Three Minutes' for electronic publication. By clicking on the document links below you will find section-by-section information on the history of the English language.

The sections are themed. Just click on the topic which you would like to research. Additions to this work will be made periodically, as the relevant shoe-boxes are found and become availabl­e, so please check back if you can't immediately find what you're looking for.

NOTE: because it remains in copyright, and indeed in its original shoe-boxes, no part of this work may ever be reproduced in any form whatsoever, and those who attempt to sing it (or even hum it a bit) in churches will be visited by the full, and not inconsiderable, weight of Adam Knott's legal team.
