Guidebook: Wenlock Priory - Red Guide


Brand: English Heritage Publishing dummy
Description: Wenlock Priory was among the greatest monasteries of the Welsh Marches. Most of the surviving ruins date from the 12th and 13th centuries and preserve features that are exceptional in English monastic architecture. A joint monastery for men and women was first founded here in about 670 and had an Anglo- Saxon princess Milburga as its second abbess. The monastery was then refounded shortly after the Norman Conquest by Roger de Montgomery 1st Earl of Shrewsbury making Wenlock one of the first Cluniac monasteries in England. ‘ Few [ruins] are better calculated to please the eye or fire the imagination than those of Wenlock.’ John Randall Randall’s Tourists’ Guide to Wenlock (1875) After the remains of St Milburga were rediscovered in about 1100 the priory became a focal point of local pilgrimage. The monastery was suppressed under Henry VIII. Its buildings were sold and the church was quickly demolished while the prior’s lodging and infirmary were converted into a residence. In the 19th and 20th centuries the owners of the site turned the ruins into a garden for the converted prior’s lodging. Responsibility for the care of the ruins was passed to the State in 1964 while the house remains in private hands. Key Features: Exclusive to English Heritage

Brand: Orca Book Services
Description: The First World War has been described as the first total war a conflict in which a country's people and resources were harnessed towards final victory. During 2014-18 Historic England set out to uncover and study the physical remains left across England by the First World War. The range of what was discovered is astonishing reflecting how the home front became as important as the battlefront. It was the place to train and equip new armies to manufacture armaments to treat the wounded and to grow more food. As millions of men joined the armed forces women entered the workforce in munitions factories as tram and bus conductresses and as farm workers. Archaeological and architectural remains can be found of practice trench lines munitions works government factories army and Po W camps airfields and airship stations. But England was also drawn into the fighting as German warships and submarines bombarded coastal towns and Zeppelin airships and later bomber aircraft brought death from the sky. The threat of invasion saw the construction of defences down the east and south coasts. Ships and smaller vessels were lost to mines torpedoes and gunfire and on the sea bed work is beginning to explore the wrecks from this almost forgotten battlefield. This new book reveals how a century later many traces of this great endeavour survive. Key Features: Hardback242 Pages

Brand: English Heritage Publishing
Description: Aldborough Roman Town by Professor Martin Millett of the Faculty of Classics University of Cambridge and Dr Rose Ferraby focuses on the wall remains and site museum of this Romano- British town in North Yorkshire and puts the finds and the archaeological discoveries in the context of Roman conquest of Britain and settlement in Yorkshire. It casts new light on the relationship between the imperial settlers and the indigenous tribes and dispels long-held misconceptions about the supposed military character of the site arguing instead for a highly developed urban population cultured and sophisticated made up of local groups who had prospered under Roman rule.  Using published records of archaeological exploration of Aldborough from the eighteenth century onwards the guidebook provides an insight into the fascination with classical civilisation that contributed to increasingly scientific methods of archaeology. It looks at the role of archaeologists scholars and benefactors many of them women who contributed to the advancement of knowledge about the site. The story of the exploration of Aldborough is brought up to date with the current investigations being undertaken by Cambridge University and the guidebook includes new interpretations of the remains based on these recent discoveries most significantly the evidence for an amphitheatre outside the town.  This attractively illustrated new guidebook to Aldborough Roman Town gives a full tour and history of this key site.  Key Features:40 pages Paperback Published in 2016

Magnify Henrietta Howard: Kings Mistress  Queens Servant
Henrietta Howard: Kings Mistress  Queens Servant

Henrietta Howard: Kings Mistress Queens Servant


Brand: Penguin Books Ltd
Description: Henrietta Howard later Countess of Suffolk was the long-term mistress and confidante of King George II. Described by Swift as a consummate courtier who packed away her ‘private virtues… like cloaths in a chest’ by Pope as ‘so very reasonable so unmov’d’ and by the world at large as ‘the Swiss’ (due to her apparent neutrality) she remains as fascinating and perplexing today as she was for her contemporaries. At the age of nine Henrietta’s idyllic childhood was shattered when her father was killed in a duel. Her mother’s death three years later left her an orphan and she soon afterwards made a disastrous marriage to Charles Howard youngest son of the Earl of Suffolk. Having been dragged into poverty by her brutal husband Henrietta used her own ingenuity and determination to secure a role at the very heart of the royal court. Although renowned for her passivity and mildness her relations with the Queen became increasingly acrimonious and she made an enemy of Prime Minister Robert Walpole before eventually resining her position amidst intense political scandal. As well as providing a fascinating insight into the dynamics of the Georgian court Tracy Borman’s wonderful biography reveals a woman who was far more than the mistress to the king: a dedicated patron of the arts; a lively and talented intellectual in her own right; a victim of violence and adultery; a passionate advocate for the rights of women long before the dawn of feminism. Above all she was a woman of reason in an Age of Reason. The mark that this enigmatic and largely forgotten royal mistress left on the society and culture of early Georgian England was to resonate well beyond the confined of the court and can still be felt today.

Magnify The Last Veteran
The Last Veteran

The Last Veteran


Brand: Harper Collins Ltd
Description: This moving and timely book explores the way the First World War has been thought about and commemorated and how it has affected its own and later generations. On 11 November 1920 huge crowds lined the streets of London for the funeral of the Unknown Warrior. As the coffin was drawn on a gun carriage from the Cenotaph to Westminster Abbey the King and Ministers of State followed silently behind. The modern world had tilted on its axis but it had been saved. Armistice Day was born the acknowledgement of the great sacrifice made by a whole generation of British men and women. Now almost a century later Harry Patch the last British veteran who saw active service has died. Our final link with the First World War is broken. Harry Patch was born in 1898 and was conscripted in 1916. He served with a Lewis gun team at the Battle of Passchendaele and in September 1917 was wounded by a shell that killed three of his comrades. After the war Patch returned to Somerset to work as a plumber a job he continued to do until his retirement. The First World War was fought not by a professional army but by ordinary civilians like Patch who epitomised Edwardian Britain and the sense now lost of what Britain stood for and why it was worth fighting for. ' The Last Veteran' tells Patch's story and explores the meaning of the war to those who fought in it and the generations that have followed. Peter Parker's illuminating and timely book is a moving tribute to a remarkable generation. About the Author Peter Parker was born in Herefordshire and educated in the Malverns Dorset and London. He is the author of The Old Lie: The Great War and the Public- School Ethos (1987) and biographies of J. R. Ackerley (1989) and Christopher Isherwood (2004).

Brand: Harper Collins Publishers
Description: In 1914 Europe plunged into the 20th century's first terrible act of self-immolation- what was then called The Great War. On the eve of its centenary Max Hastings seeks to explain both how the conflict came about and what befell millions of men and women during the first months of strife. He finds the evidence overwhelming that Austria and Germany must accept principal blame for the outbreak. While what followed was a vast tragedy he argues passionately against the 'poets' view' that the war was not worth winning. It was vital to the freedom of Europe he says that the Kaiser's Germany should be defeated. His narrative of the early battles will astonish those whose images of the war are simply of mud wire trenches and steel helmets. Hastings describes how the French Army marched into action amid virgin rural landscapes in uniforms of red and blue led by mounted officers with flags flying and bands playing. The bloodiest day of the entire Western war fell on 22 August 1914 when the French lost 27000 dead. Four days later at Le Cateau the British fought an extraordinary action against the oncoming Germans one of the last of its kind in history. In October at terrible cost they held the allied line against massive German assaults in the first battle of Ypres. The author also describes the brutal struggles in Serbia East Prussia and Galicia where by Christmas the Germans Austrians Russians and Serbs had inflicted on each other three million casualties. This book offers answers to the huge and fascinating question 'what happened to Europe in 1914?' through Max Hastings's accustomed blend of top-down and bottom-up accounts from a multitude of statesmen and generals peasants housewives and private soldiers of seven nations. His narrative pricks myths and offers some striking and controversial judgements. For a host of readers gripped by the author's last international best-seller All Hell Let Loose this will seem a worthy successor. About the Author Sir Max Hastings is the author of twenty-five books many of them about war. He was educated at Charterhouse and University College Oxford which he quit after a year to become a journalist. Thereafter he reported for newspapers and BBC TV from sixty-four countries and eleven conflicts notably the 1973 Arab- Israeli War Vietnam and the 1982 Battle for the Falklands. Between 1986 and 2002 he was editor-in-chief of The Daily Telegraph then editor of the Evening Standard. He has won many prizes both for journalism and for his books most recently the 2012 Chicago Pritzker Library's $100000 literary award for his contribution to military history and the RUSI's Westminster Medal for his international best-seller ' All Hell Let Loose'.
