This is history at a lively, enjoyable pace. The book is packed with tales and events in Leicester’s colourful past, brought to life by Joan Stevenson. It was the Romans who put Leicester on the map, calling it Ratae. Growing in importance under the Danes, Leicester prospered under the Normans, but came out badly from the Black Death, the Civil War and the Reformation. It began to grow as an early industrial town, flourished under the Georgians and Victorians, and became a city in 1919. “The best ever written about Leicester .... I just could not put it down.” – Eric Snow, Historian.
