"Flores Historiarum." Translated by Giles, J.A.
From the editor's preface:"The original work of Roger de Wendover has been lately edited
by the Rev. II. O. Coxe, of the Bodleian library, for
the English Historical Society, and from the text of that
edition the present translation has been made. I have done
my best to give the English reader, for the first time, a faithful
idea of the Latin original..." This chronicle contains an abridged history
of the world from the creation to the year 1235. Roger of Wendover was a monk St. Alban's abbey,
where he died on the 6th of May, in the year 1237.
