The Book of Were-Wolves by Sabine Baring-Gould
The Book of Were-Wolves by Sabine Baring-Gould
Very thorough treatment of the subject and explanation of the beliefs and fables. The original text has been computer-read and so there are some howling errors, but they don't spoil the story. Well worth a read, with some lovely, well-written passages and it puts flesh on the bones of information from other sources.
The English Abbey Explained (England's Living Hist&hellip by Trevor Yorke
Lots of detail without being boring or getting bogged down. Jam packed with photos and drawings (just like his other books). His descriptions are straightforward and to the point. For anyone interested in medieval life (and abbeys/priories were central to the age) this book deserves a place on your bookshelf. It doesn't give details of the life of monks/canons etc. but it doesn't claim to be such a book. Go to Dickinson or Kerr for that sort of detail. Yorke puts their descriptions into brick and stone context.
Bridges Explained: Viaducts - Aqueducts (Britain's&hellip by Trevor Yorke
Well researched, explained and presented, with lots of photos and drawings. He uses basic physics/materials science with no maths. A fascinating book.
