    York Through the Lens of The Press

    by Paul Chrystal

    The Yorkshire Evening Press, known today as The Press, has been the beating heart of life in York since 1882.

    Through the reporting of its journalists and the images captured by its photographers, The Press has witnessed the stories, events and changes in the city.

    Now, for the first time, the images in this book – which are unavailable from any other source – are compiled to present a fascinating pictorial history of York.

    Many of the images have not been seen since they were first published in the paper, and for that reason they give the reader an opportunity to indulge in some unashamed and untrammelled nostalgia, whatever their age.

    Paul Chrystal is the author of around 120 books, many on York and Yorkshire. He is editor of the Yorkshire Archaeological Journal, and his work has appeared in national newspapers and he has contributed to various television and radio shows.

    Women of York

    by Claire Shaw

    Claire Shaw has been seeking out the women of York. The odd plaque on the wall of a significant building gives a tantalising clue from time to time, but now through variety of research to uncover more about the life of the aristocrat Anne Fairfax and the letters of Elizabeth Montagu, Claire has pieced together an overview of the lives of many more women.

    Some of these women were extremely talented and deserve to be more well-known than they actually are. The book looks at Cartimandua, queen of Brigantia, which encompasses modern-day York, the lives of Roman women through investigation of their burials, Queen Ethelburga and Elizabeth of York, the Naughty Nuns of the Priory of St Clements, Catholic martyr Margaret Clitherow, persecuted witch Jennet Preston, rebel entrepreneurs Mary Tuke and Mary Ann Craven, secret lovers Anne Lister, Marianna Belcombe and Ann Walker, plus York’s female artists, benefactors, and the last woman to be hanged in York.
