The Norfolk Almanac of Disasters. N° de ref. de la librería
Sinopsis: The Norfolk Almanac of Disasters covers events in Norfolk from before the Norman Conquest right up to the storms of January 2007 ? the great floods, fires, storms, shipwrecks and rebellions over the years, and how the heroism of Norfolk people so often saved the day. If you?ve ever wondered what happened locally on your birthday, anniversary or any other special day, you?ll find it here. It?s a book to dip into and discover parts of the county?s history you never knew ? such as what inspired George Manby to invent his lifesaving mortar.Within these pages you?ll discover when the sea froze at Hunstanton, read about storms worse even than the one of 1987 and find out why Cley moved north.You?ll learn why the pope excommunicated the whole of Norwich, why there are flood marks on the church wall at King?s Lynn and how the river at Norwich was covered in wax. And you?ll also discover just why Henry Blogg was the most decorated lifeboatman ever, why Caister men never turn back and why 1 August is a really unlucky day for Norwich?
