A History of Whitby [9780750989879]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Whitby is well known today as a seaside resort and a picturesque place to visit, with its piers, boats, fine sands and, overlooking its tangle of red-roofed houses, the ruins of its Abbey in one of the most splendid settings in Britain for such romantic remains. But few of its many visitors would guess the long history of the town or its significance, from time to time, in national affairs. The only comprehensive history of Whitby, it rapidly sold out and Dr White, its author, of ancient Whitby stock, has now fully revised and updated his book, with some new illustrations and interpretations. This new edition will continue as the definitive work on Whitby.
AUTHOR: Andrew White spent thirty-one years working in museums and archaeology. He studied for a BA and MA in Classics at Lancaster University and a PhD. in Archaeology at Nottingham University. He is an Honorary Research Fellow of Lancaster University, and pursues a freelance career as a writer, broadcaster and lecturer. Andrew White's ancestors have lived in Whitby since at least the seventeenth century, mostly as mariners, which probably accounts for his lifelong affection for the town and his fascination with its rich history.
