     Det ryska anfallet mot Stockholms skärgård 1719 För 300 år sedan, sommaren 1719, drog 200 ryska fartyg med 20 000 soldater in i Stockholms skärgård. På kort tid ödelades närmare tusentalet gårdar. Hela hemman och skogen sattes i brand. Skördar förstördes. Människor torterades. Kvinnor våldtogs. Andra fördes bort som fångar. Boskap slaktades och åts upp. Tio tusen människor blev utblottade och hemlösa. Ingen kom befolkningen till hjälp. I två omgångar svepte denna förödande våg av eld och förgängelse fram över öarna. Brända hemman är en historia som fortfarande lever kvar i folkmedvetandet. För första gången i komplett bokform kan man här följa ryssarnas framfart i Roslagen, ö för ö, gård för gård. Befolkningens öden kommer läsaren inpå livet. Här skildras det dåtida livet och arbetet. Hundratals skriftliga källor och arkivfakta liksom samtal och intervjuer utgör underlag för Gunnar Linds engagerade framställning. Han berättar även om öarnas historia. Därtill sätter han in ryssarnas angrepp i ett större politiskt sammanhang. Karl XII:s död låg mindre än ett år tillbaka i tiden. Ett storslaget bildmaterial bestående av samtida, vackert utförda kartor och fördjupande faktarutor kompletterar texten. Gunnar Lind, bosatt i Gustavsberg, har under många år samlat material till boken, genomkorsat skärgården i alla riktningar och besökt öarna, tagit del av arkivens uppteckningar och handlingar liksom all den litteratur som finns, samtalat med äldre skärgårdsbor. Han arbetar vidare med en andra volym av Brända hemman."Det är utan tvekan ett storverk" Kari Tarkiainen i Svenska Dagbladet"Wow, vilket praktverk: Gunnar Lind berättar levande och detaljerat om rysshärjningarna 1719" Norrtelje tidning"En blivande klassiker!"

  • av Adam Nicolson
    96,82 - 179 kr.

    A fascinating account from award-winning author, Adam Nicolson, on the history of Nicolson's own national treasure, his family home: Sissinghurst.Sissinghurst is world famous as a place of calm and beauty, a garden slipped into the ruins of a rose-pink Elizabethan palace. But is it entirely what its creators intended? Has its success over the last thirty years come at a price? Is Sissinghurst everything it could be?The story of this piece of land, an estate in the Weald of Kent, is told here for the first time from the very beginning. Adam Nicolson, who now lives there, has uncovered remarkable new findings about its history as a medieval manor and great sixteenth-century house, from the days of its decline as an eighteenth-century prison to a flourishing Victorian farm and on to the creation, by his grandparents Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson, of a garden in a weed-strewn wreck.Alongside his recovery of the past, Adam Nicolson wanted something else: for the land at Sissinghurst to live again, to become the landscape of orchards, cattle, fruit and sheep he remembered from his boyhood. Could that living frame of a mixed farm be brought back to what had turned into monochrome fields of chemicalised wheat and oilseed rape? Against the odds, he was going to try.Adam Nicolson has always been a passionate writer about landscape and buildings, but this is different. This is the place he wanted to make good again, reconnecting garden, farm and land. More than just a personal biography of a place, this book is the story of taking an inheritance and steering it in a new direction, just as an entrepreneur might take hold of a company, or just as all of us might want to take our dreams and make them real.

    Hanwell and Southall both have surprisingly interesting historical associations. The adjoining Middlesex parishes are linked by the Uxbridge Road, formerly the Oxford Road, which was connected to London. Hanwell and Southall were both reliant on agriculture right up to the end of the Victorian period. It was during the Edwardian era, and particularly after the First World War, that Southall began to change to an industrial district - greatly facilitated by the good transport links such as the canal and railway networks. Hanwell never industrialised to the same extent as Southall, and remains far more suburban in character to this day. Hanwell is linked in the popular imagination with Charlie Chaplin, who went to school at the Central London District School. Contrasting images of the school as it was and how it now appears are shown in this book. Southall has the distinction of having the oldest manor house in Greater London - dating from the sixteenth century and restored. The Middlesex County Asylum, dating to 1831, was also in the Southall parish. The building still remains and is currently undergoing restoration. The importance of the railways and the local connection with Isambard Kingdom Brunel is dealt with, as well as the importance of the Grand Junction Canal in speeding the growth of industry in the Southall area. Hanwell amalgamated with Ealing in 1926 and Southall in 1965, but they still retain their own identities in the present day, as they did a hundred years ago.

    Brighton has long been an important seaside town, and today draws in visitors from all over Britain and beyond for its varied nightlife, rich history and attractive waterfront. In 1800, Brighton had forty-one inns and taverns, and by 1860 there were well over 450, echoing the town's growth in popularity through the Regency and early Victorian eras. A recent resurgence of interest in real ale has also seen a welcome boom in micro-breweries, placing Brighton firmly on the beer-lover's map. David Muggleton takes us on a tour of these watering holes, including the long-established venerable Greyhound, elegant Regency Cricketers, high-Victorian Colonnade, elaborate mock-Tudor King & Queen and the English Renaissance revivalist Good Companions, the pub reputed to have opened on the very day that the Second World War began. Brimming with quirky tales and fascinating facts, this carefully crafted guide initiates readers into the fascinating history of Brighton's pubs.

    Widnes is an industrial town within the borough of Halton, in the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England, with an urban area population of 57,663 in 2004. It is located on the northern bank of the River Mersey where the estuary narrows to form Runcorn Gap. Directly to the south of Widnes across the Mersey is the town of Runcorn. Upstream and 8 miles to the east of Widnes is the town of Warrington, and downstream 16 miles to the west is the city of Liverpool. Historically part of Lancashire, prior to the Industrial Revolution Widnes consisted of a small number of separate settlements on land which was mainly marsh or moorland. In 1847 the first chemical factory was established and the town rapidly became a major centre of the chemical industry. Widnes continues to be a major manufacturer of chemicals and there has been a degree of diversification of the town's industries. Widnes lies on the southern route of the Liverpool to Manchester railway line. The Sankey Canal (now disused) terminates in an area of Widnes known as Spike Island.

  • - The First Kings of Anfield
    av Mark Metcalf
    105 - 165 kr.

    As one of the twelve founding Football League clubs in 1888/89, Everton Football Club has a long, proud history. Having played more top-flight League games than any other English team, the Toffees have won the League championship nine times - the fourth best record of any team. The first occasion was in the third season of League football, 1890/91 when the Blues became the first club from Liverpool to collect the League championship trophy from their then base, Anfield. In achieving their success, Everton knocked the winners of the first two championships, the Invincibles of Preston North End, off their throne. But how did they do it? Who were the players in this momentous season, what sort of football did they play and who did they beat?
