Thanks to his diary - Samuel Pepys is one of the most interesting characters in history. His life encompassed happenings of huge historical and human impact - including the execution of Charles I and the Great Fire of London."Voices from the World of Samuel Pepys" captures the spirit of Restoration London, as it grew to become a major centre of international commerce and culture. It provides accounts on all aspects of contemporary life, from the arts and entertainment to politics and religion.Pepys' diary, which he kept almost daily from 1659-1669, is the central resource, but it also includes 'voices' from all levels of society, taken from a wide variety of contemporaneous sources.
