Summary Enter A Grim Almanac of York to discover 365 gruesome tales from the city's dark past. From bloody battles, appalling accidents, and extraordinary deaths, there is a tale to surprise even the most hardened reader. Read about a Viking invasion of the city in 866 led by Ivar the Boneless; Richard of York, whose head was displayed over the Micklegate Bar for a year; and St. Margaret Clitherow, who was tortured and crushed to death for hiding Catholic priests. Generously illustrated with photographs, sketches, and original documents, here are true accounts of fires, catastrophes, murders, and executions. If you have ever wondered what nasty goings-on occurred in the York of yesteryear, then this book is for you. Prepare to be shocked, stunned, and startled!
