The Medway Towns: Rover, Docks And Urban Life

Paperback
by Dunster Sandra
In 1550 Rochester was the only Medway town. It dominated the river estuary and an agricultural hinterland in which Strood, Chatham and Gillingham were nearby villages, reliant on fishing and farming for their livelihood. By the beginning of the twentieth century these four towns had become an urban conurbation. The key factor in this dramatic change was the growth of the Royal Naval Dockyards at CA--A--hat...

Criminal London

Unknown
by Mark Herber
London has always had more than its fair share of criminals, and medieval records are full of murders, fights, forgery and vagrancy. As the capital, it was the obvious centre for conspiracies, riots and revolts, while its wealth and anonymity made it a magnet for thieves, robbers and criminal gangs from the entire kingdom. In addition to the criminals and their crimes, the author also provides a well-resear...

This intriguing book opens up new perspectives on the story in an account of how and why the new City of London was rebuilt as it was after 1666. The original appearance of the new, late 17th-century London is re-created in some three hundred pi...

Outrageous Waves - Global Warming & Coastal Change in Britain

Hardback
by Basil E Cracknell
The great floods of 1953 in Eastern and Southern England inspired Basil Cracknell to write this book, at a time when he was finishing his thesis on changing land and sea levels in the Thames estuary. He decided to map the impact of medieval sea level rise for the whole of the coastline of Britain, and half a century (and a great deal of meticulous research and extensive travel) later, that seed has borne fr...

Kingsdown - Bristol's Vertical Suburb

Hardback
by Wright, Mary

The land had once belonged to the Benedictine Priory of St James but Henry VIII's Dissolution resulted in the fragmentation of land ownership. The consequent sale of l...
