AUTHOR: Robert Dunning
A History of Somerset
A History of Somerset
  • Description
  • Related

The county of Somerset has a long and fascinating history, which included the oldest wooden trackway in the world once leading across its marshes and some of the most modern engineering enterprises.

It was the producer of some of the best woollen cloth until the Industrial Revolution, of the finest cheeses, the sturdiest cattle fed on its rich grasslands. Its church towers are famous, its Arthurian tales legendary, its battlefield at Sedgemoor still capable of producing an emotional response.

Robert Dunning has been writing about his native county for forty years. It is an essential introduction to a special part of England.

ISBN 0 86183 476 3. Imprint: Somerset Books, hardback, 250x185mm, 128 pages. Published 2003.
