The History of Beverley, East Yorkshire : From Earliest Times to the Year 2003 (Signed by the Author]

£19.99

Product description

Published by Blackthorn Press in 2003. First edition. Signed by the author, with a gift inscription. Include over 80 illustrations.

This book is a comprehensive history of Beverley (and East Yorkshire as a whole) from earliest times to 2003. The earliest times start from the Palaeolithic period when Northern Europe was still covered by the thick ice of the Ice Age and proceed to detail nomadic life in the Bronze and Iron age. Later chapters discuss the arrival of the Romans, and then the Vikings, and eventually reach the industrial revolution and beyond.

The 'History of Beverley' begins with the story of an early settlement centred round the tomb of St John of Beverley, who died in 721. It goes on to tell of the commercial and religious importance of the medieval town (a time when the two great churches, Beverley Minster and St Mary's were built) which by 1377 was the 10th largest town in England. It then follows the town's decline in the 16th and 17th centuries and its rise to prominence in the 18th century when it became the County Town of the East Riding of Yorkshire. Today Beverly remains a thriving busy market town which retains much of its medieval character.
The author, Pamela Hopkins came to Beverley in 1972 to teach. She has run local history classes for the WEA and has published widely on the History of Beverley where she still lives.

In very good condition. Light surface marks to the dust jacket.
