    This was one of the books that surprised me as I wrote it In all my years of writing about Bishop Walter and others, I had not realized just how involved the Bishop became in the various schemes which Despenser plotted For this book I had to extensively research Stapledon and his period in office The good Bishop, it appears was less kindly than I would have thought For a man who set up grammar schools, who created Exeter College, Oxford originally Stapledon College , and who travelled widel This was one of the books that surprised me as I wrote it In all...
