    Milan Walks and Guides

    by Edward Staiger

    One of the miracles of Milan is how physically accessible it can be. One can easily depend on its network of public transportation (the most extensive and reliable in Italy), but as this book proves – in Milan, one can walk. In walking, one can peruse, one can enter into the city as into a complete five-senses experience.

    This book is divided into four separate walking tours of the city, easily traversed on foot.

    The distance required by the mind just isn’t possible in a quick (or desperate) getaway weekend; Milan’s window-shopping alone – the best that Italy can offer – could take a week or a month. Its history took about two millennia. The sights and splendours of its many museums and churches can actually shock as they come to the tourist as so unexpected, literally, so unheard of.

    It’s finally time to discover Milan.

    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.
