The Assassination of the archbishop by william moyle
The Assassination of the Archbishop is a story of ambition, power, excitement, disasters, corruption, betrayals, exile, battles with his king, Henry II and his beautiful wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine. The chapters make a riveting thriller of medieval times ending with the final legendary night on December 29th 1170, when as Archbishop, Becket bravely walks into Canterbury Cathedral, only to be slain by the four knights of Henry II.
William Moyle was instrumental in setting up the Friends of St Thomas a Becket. In 2010 William was asked by the Friends to research their patron saint and this book is the result.
