This book draws upon the varied history and unique heritage of the County Palatine of Durham, an ancient land of saints and warlords. It is a catalogue of curious tales, odd anecdotes and quirky characters from County Durham's past. Within its pages the reader will discover stories of hauntings, murders and mysterious deaths, while modern-day enigmas - such as the ancient structure that archaeologists remain at a loss to explain, or the lost treasure found at the bottom of the River Wear - are revisited.

Inspired in part by the chronicles and compendiums of County Durham's nineteenth-century historians and antiquarians, this book is a miscellany - at times tragic, at times comic, but always entertaining. And for those for whom the collective subjects hold a perennial fascination, it is ideal for dipping into, perhaps to learn something new about wonderfully curious County Durham.
