A Grim Almanac of York [9780750960632]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
This day-by-day account of gruesome tales from York's past reveals the seedy underbelly of what was historically the most important city in the North. Inside these pages you will find true stories of murder and intrigue, battles and conspiracies, witches and religious martyrs, gruesome executions and horrible accidents. Read about Margaret Clitherow, tortured to death for her beliefs, Richard Scrope, the archbishop executed for treason, and of course the notorious highwayman Richard `Dick' Turpin and his moonlight ride. If you have ever wondered what nasty goings-on occurred in the York of yesteryear, then read on ... if you dare!
AUTHOR: Alan Sharp owns an historical tour-guiding business in York; he also serves as the chief guide and regularly conducts large numbers of tourists around the city. He is also a stand-up comedian, performing on television and in some of the top comedy clubs in the country. He has a BA in English and Drama from University College, Dublin, and was a contestant on the 2012 season of Mastermind.
