A Place In History

A Place In HistorySo many people have their place in history.

For some it is a large and well-known slot, familiar to millions of people in the present day.

Others have a far more humble location, and are not so well-known. They all find their place in this book.

Join author Peter Sargent on a 2,000-year journey through East Anglia’s colourful and varied history. In this series of 50 short stories, you will meet kings and queens, such as William the Conqueror, Edward I and Katharine of Aragon, figures of legend such as Fenland giant Tom Hickathrift and monster-slaying Anglo-Saxon hero Beowulf, medieval saints and a full ration of fairly unrepentant sinners.

There are ill-fated witches and stern clergymen, Elizabethan sea dogs, Civil War soldiers, religious extremists and rum-loving sailors, urban revolutionaries and working class heroes, railway entrepreneurs, literary heroines, pioneering cricketers, world-beating, globe-trotting boxers and dedicated philanthropists.

We also consider the paths taken by Second World War evacuees, whose lives were changed forever by the events of 1939. There is also an honoured place for some colourful and noisy peacocks!
Discover their tales in this entertaining sequel to the author’s first book, A Moment in Time.
