Northumberland: Romans to Victorians
Northumberland Romans to Victorians is an essential volume for anyone wishing to explore the county of Northumberland who is seriusly interested in its history.
To the Romans the area was Ad Fines-the limit of empire. In AD 122 the Emporer Hadrian decided to build a wall stretching from coast to coast to provide protection. After the Romans left Northumberland became the heart of one of the gretest Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. No other county has such magnificent medieval remains, from the magnificent Alnwick Castle to the remains of the Chantry at Morpeth. Ravaged during the Anglo-Scottish Wars, the county became the target of the infamous Border Reivers. Victorian Northumberland was home to some of the country’s most influential geniuses, including Lord Armstrong, and his world-famous house at Cragside. Read about all these eras and more in this excellent book. Pen and Sword Books. 135 pages
