We welcome the historian, broadcaster and award-winning journalist Dan Jones to Petworth.

From the bestselling author of The Templars, Powers and Thrones is an epic new history that quite simply tells the story of how the world we know today came to be built - a thousand-year adventure that moves from the ruins of the once-mighty city of Rome, sacked by barbarians in AD 410, to the first contacts between the old and new worlds in the sixteenth century. It shows how, from a state of crisis and collapse, the West was rebuilt and came to dominate the entire globe. This is a book written about – and for – an age of profound change, and it asks the biggest questions about the West both then and now. Where did we come from? What made us? Where do we go from here?

Dan Jones’ books - including The Templars, Crusaders and, with Marina Amaral, The Colour of Time and The World Aflame - have sold more than one million copies worldwide. He has written and hosted dozens of TV shows including the acclaimed Netflix/Channel 5 series, Secrets of Great British Castles. His writing has appeared in newspapers and magazines including the London Evening Standard, The Sunday Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Wall Street Journal, GQ and The Spectator.
