The Dark Side of East London

“Although my family has its origins in London, most of them from the east end, I wouldn’t be able to say with any confidence if Whitechapel and the Ripper murders were in the East End or not. It seems a shame that one specific area of London has this awful reputation, which author David Charnick investigates so thoroughly, but such a lot of terrible things seem to have happened there!”

The Tudor Murder Files

“Only a few centuries ago, life was so cheap, you could be wandering around the court in the morning, and be dead in the afternoon, at the whim of the monarchy or one of its representatives. I don’t suppose that Tudor times were any worse than previous times, but they certainly see to have something of a reputation, which James Moore’s excellent book celebrates in some style!”

An Archaeological Study of the Bayeux Tapestry

“We all know what the Bayeux Tapestry celebrates in its iconic artwork, but Trevor Rowley goes one step further and looks at the buildings and characters with a view t actually identifying them! Absolutely fascinating, brings a whole new dimension to the study of this amazing artefact.”

Tracing Your Twentieth Century Ancestors

“When we were compiling our own family tree a couple of years ago, we concentrated first on those ancestors who we knew intimately and then their forebears, eventually working our way back through previous centuries. We tnink of ourselves of twentieth century people, lucky enough to have survived through to the next, the twenty-first. The problem with twentieth century genealogy is the sad fact that the latest census available for research is the 1911 one. I think this is a national scandal, personally. Karen Bali suggests other, brilliant and unusual ways of getting at the information you want, but it remains a national disgrace that with modern scanning techniques, more of the data that belongs to us is not available. A great book, most welcome.”

Dark Valleys

“For aficionadoes of murder and darker crimes – this amazing book uncovers a hotbed of foul deeds in South Wales – well-researched and very well written.”
