Canterbury is one of Britain’s oldest and best loved cities. It has been at the forefront of some of the most important events that have taken place in this country, and inspired the people who lived and worked here to go on and do great things.
Written especially for young people, though designed to appeal to all ages, THE YOUNG PERSON'S HISTORY GUIDE TO CANTERBURY charts the city’s fascinating history over the past 2,000 years, from the earliest Iron Age settlement on the banks of a swampy river to the 21st century cosmopolitan city we see today.
The softback version of this book is now sadly out of print but we are making it available in digital format (pdf). Our best-selling title ever!
