Synopsis
Many remarkable women have been born in, or have strong connections with Yorkshire. In Issy Shannon's new book we hear about the most infamous - including witches, thieves, fraudsters and murders. Among many other are the calculating Queen Cartimandua, ruler of the Brigantes and arguably more powerful than her contemporary Boudicca, Mary Bateman, the Yorkshire witch, whose skin was flayed off, cut up and sold as good luck charms after her execution, mary Newall of the Cragg Vale Coiners Gang, who roasted alive an informant, and Elizabeth Broadingham, who was burned at the stake for murdering her husband in 1776. Issy Shannon is a natural storyteller, and her lively text is fully illustrated with a wide range of photographs and engravings - illustrating the criminals and their crimes, and the towns and villages of Yorkshire in days gone by.
