Description

* CASTLE of the CONQUEROR! 1,000 years of horrible events at WARWICK CASTLE * KING CHARLES RIPPED MY FLESH! The two-week siege that almost brought the town to its knees! * WARWICK IS BURNING! Fires, disasters and riots galore! Hundreds of dark and scandalous events have happened in Warwick over the centuries, from the murder of Piers Gaveston, the king's lover, who was stabbed and then beheaded on Blacklow Hill, to the incredible histories of the Earls of Warwick. The Gunpowder Plot was formed here, and the castle's horses were stolen afterwards when the plotters made a desperate attempt to escape the King's wrath. CONTAINING martyrs, murderers and corrupt officials, crimes, ghosts, prize-fighters and eccentrics, you'll never see the town in the same way again!show more
