Yorkshire is well known for its miners, pudding and cricket, but Yorkshire: A Very Peculiar History scrapes beyond the surface and past the cliches.

Featuring a host of characters from Yorkshire past and present, from Guy Fawkes to Michael Parkinson, it's not all grit and grime!

Tracing Yorkshire's history back through Roman and Viking rule, to the various tribes which populated the area in prehistoric times, Yorkshire: A Very Peculiar History covers the largest county in England from all angles.

Featuring quirky tales of Yorkshire's crucial role in the industrial revolution, and detailed stories about the famed Wars of the Roses, this book tells the astonishing tale of this large and historic county and its people and culture, including recipes, lists and maps.
