Description

The Little Book of Oxfordshire is a funny, fast-paced, fact-packed compendium of the sort of frivolous, fantastic or simply strange information which no one will want to be without. Here we find out about the most unusual crimes and punishments, eccentric inhabitants, famous sons and daughters and literally hundreds of wacky facts (plus some authentically bizarre bits of historic trivia). Combining essential facts with little-known, weird and often hilarious trivia, it is an essential purchase for all lovers of the county. Colourful characters and the general mayhem of Oxford history flow through the pages like the iconic Thames, Isis and Cherwell rivers. Dip in and celebrate!show more

About Paul Sullivan

PAUL SULLIVAN is a full-time writer who lives in Oxford. A specialist in folklore with many books to his name, he also researched, wrote and presented a weekly festivals and customs guide for BBC Radio 5 in the 1990s. Moving to Oxford, he worked part-time in The Museum of Oxford in order to absorb the history of the area, reading widely, studying the museum's collection and visiting as many of the city's celebrated sites and events as possible. When time allows, he moonlights as a semi-professional folk singer.show more
