Swords, Loaves & Fishes - A History of Dunbar

£50.00

Product description

Paperback, 2003, Harlaw Heritage

Very good condition with creasing to front cover and first three pages.

This monumental work on the history of Dunbar was no doubt a labour of love by the author over several decades. What has resulted is probably the most detailed history of any town in the UK if not the world.
The author considers 10 key events were crucial to Dunbar's history ranging from c 638 -the establishment of Anglian shire centre- to 1976 and the opening of the John Muir Country Park, although the time span of the book is from the mists of time to 2002.
There are 13 chapters dealing with the Castle; the Earls (1072-1289); the Visitors,; the Earls(1289-1611); Ecclesiastical; Oliver Cromwell; Forgotten Men; Royal Burgh; Agriculture and Fishing; Trade Economic and Social; John Muir; Military Annals and the hills and postscript. In addition there are 12 appendices, 156 illustrations, 18 figures plus comprehensive notes and bibliography.

This is truly a remarkable book, the research immaculate, the text is easy to read and the illustrations are first class.
