History Of Bristol
Bristol has much to be proud of, having prospered as a city and a major port for over six hundred years. But its past includes more than a fair share of cruel, inglorious and scandalous episodes that are generally little referred to. Included in this book are slaving, persecution, greed and incompetence, and riot, giving some amazing stories from Bristolian Derek Robinson.
Bristol Explores the colourful and fascinating history of Bristol through visible signs that it has left behind. This book takes a fresh look at some of the city's well-known - and not so well-know - buildings, and is also a guide to some of the many statues, columns, plaques and other memorials that can be found across the city. Full description
The Bristol Gunners tells the story of the Gloucestershire Volunteer Artillery (GVA) from its birth in the French invasion crisis of 1859 through to the modern day. An Italian revolutionary sparked the crisis which gave life to the GVA, and by a strange quirk of circumstances the GVA became intimately linked with the Italian people through two world wars.
