Bloody British History: Peterborough, Paperback / softback Book

Bloody British History: Peterborough Paperback / softback


Razed by Vikings! Deadly Danish assaults and demolitions. Neolithic murders! The tragic tale of Britain's earliest recorded homicide!

A deadly game of thrones! The last remains of two royal victims in the Abbey. Murdered by the Ripper! Was one of Jack the Ripper's victims from Peterborough?

Find out inside! `I Can't Stop While There Are Lives to be Saved': The incredible story of British spy nurse Edith Cavell.

There is the darker side to Peterborough's history. All manner of incredible events have occurred in the city: Roman occupations; Saxon murders and miracles; riots and revolts; battles, diseases, disasters and plagues.

Including more than 60 illustrations, and with the history of institutions such as the prisoner-of-war camps of the Napoleonic era and the slums and workhouses of the Victorian age, you'll never see the city in the same way again.
