Celtic Britain, Charles Thomas
5 Charles Thomas Celtic Britain
Thames & Hudson 247563 Great Britain 1999 0500279357 / 9780500279359 Softcover Very Good Condition The period between the departure of the Romans, around AD 400, and the establishment of the English kingdoms in the later 7th century is one of the least known and most important episodes in British history. In this time of turmoil, Scots, Picts and Anglo-Saxons contributed to a breakdown in civilized life, but it was also a time of renaissance: a rebirth of Celtic language and art, the rise of native British kingdoms in Scotland, Wales and Cornwall, and the flowering of the Church in Celtic Britain. This is the period that this work seeks to illuminate. In this turbulent period, how much continuity can be discerned with Roman Britain? What are the links with Britain today? Charles Thomas pieces together the facts behind the accretions of myth. He ranges from Rome's Christian legacy to the growth of monasticism, from Ogham writing to Pictish symbol stories, from St Ninian, Scotland's first bishop, to St Columba of Iona, from the narrative poem, "The Gododdin", to the origins of the story of Tristan and Isolde, providing a portrait of this romantic and heroic age. 200 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: History::Great Britain; History; ISBN: 0500279357. ISBN/EAN: 9780500279359. Inventory No: 247563. Paperback

Tales from the Two Puddings: Stratford, East London's Olympic City in the 1960's, Eddie Johnson
6 Eddie Johnson Tales from the Two Puddings: Stratford, East London's Olympic City in the 1960's
Fifty First 51 State Press 247977 London 2012 0957209002 / 9780957209008 Softcover Very Good Condition In 1962, exactly fifty years before the Olympic Games rolled into Stratford, East London, the Johnson family took over the Two Puddings, the most notorious pub in the area. Due to a combination of its cream-tiled walls and the volume of blood spilt, it was also known locally as the Butcher s Shop . Within a few short years, it had become one of London s busiest and most fashionable pubs, its hugely popular music nights acting as a magnet for a large and colourful cast of disparate characters who would regularly descend upon the premises, including renowned actors, writers, singers, musicians, champion boxers, infamous gangsters, television personalities, and World Cup-winning footballers. By the time the Puddings closed its doors for the last time, nearly four decades later, landlord Eddie Johnson was the longest serving licensee in London. Tales from the Two Puddings is a poignant, at times hilarious, look back upon a lost world of East End eccentrics, local villainy, vindictive policemen, punch ups, and practical jokes, all now lying buried beneath the concrete blocks and sterile shopping centres of the new Stratford 307 pages. Illustrated with black and white photograph. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History::Great Britain; History; ISBN/EAN: 9780957209008. Inventory No: 247977.

Mary Queen of Scots: Romance and Nation, Jane Elizabeth Lewis
14 Jane Elizabeth Lewis Mary Queen of Scots: Romance and Nation
Routledge 247431 London 1998 0415114810 / 9780415114813 Softcover Very Good Condition As an historical figure Mary Queen of Scots has been perpetually represented on canvas, page and stage, and has captured the British imagination since the time of her death in 1587. The 'real' Mary Stuart however has remained an enigma. Mary Queen of Scots: Romance and Nation sheds light on Mary's life by exploring four main themes: * the history of Mary's representation in Britain from the late Tudor period focusing on key periods in the formation of the British identity and closely analysing several texts against a background of the visual, musical and literary works of each period * the reasons why those representing Mary have been so conscious that her image was largely a debatable fiction * the identification of symbolic styles, using Mary to reveal the habits of representation in each historical period * The link between the image of Mary Stuart and Britain's long struggle to define itself as a single nation, focusing on the roles of gender and religion in this development. 259 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: History::Great Britain; History; Literature. ISBN: 0415114810. ISBN/EAN: 9780415114813. Inventory No: 247431. Paperback
