History of Somerset by Robert Dunning
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The county of Somerset has a long and fascinating history, which included the oldest wooden trackway in the world once leading across its marshes and some of the most modern engineering enterprises. It was the producer of some of the best woollen cloth until the Industrial Revolution, of the finest cheeses, the sturdiest cattle fed on its rich grasslands. Its church towers are famous, its Arthurian tales legendary, its battlefield at Sedgemoor still capable of producing an emotional response.

Author Biography

Robert Dunning has been writing about his native county for forty years. His short history first appeared in 1978. This is its second reissue, but with an expanded introduction, some few corrections, and a new and much larger selection of illustrations. It is an essential introduction to a special part of England; a book which the writer Alexander Waugh, another Somerset man, declared essential reading should he be consigned to a desert island.
