Gloucester : Recreating the Past, Paperback / softback Book

Gloucester : Recreating the Past Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


If you stand today in the middle of Gloucester, you've stood above 2,000 years of accumulated history.

You stand above a Roman fortress, a proud colonial city, a Saxon royal centre, a prosperous medieval market town, a Roundhead bastion and an expanding Victorian industrial hub. Over the last 50 years local artist and historian Philip Moss has been recreating those Gloucesters of the past in a series of beautiful and well-researched reconstruction drawings and paintings.

For the first time, the complete body of Philip's work has been collected together to tell the story of Gloucester from its Roman beginnings to the present.

Philip's work is accompanied original photographs and drawings from archaeological excavations in Gloucester over the last 50 years and commentary from Andrew Armstrong, the City Archaeologist, to tell the story of Gloucester's past.
