Product Description

Details

St Andrews is a peaceful and attractive place today, but Leonard Low has dug through dusty tomes to uncover a past of religious war, murder, adultery, plagues, witch trials, disasters at sea, air raids, all recounted with vivid impact, to delight his many fans. It all started with the arrival in Fife of St Andrew's bones. Read how David Stewart, eldest son of Robert III, was starved to death in a dungeon. Read about the burning of a Protestant martyr and the murder of a Catholic cardinal; terrifying witch-hunts; the Kirk's attempts to enforce good behaviour; the ravages of the plague years; the murder of an archbishop and its terrible consequences; shipping disasters great and small; rabbit wars on the golf course; a WW1 hero with a St Andrews connection; a WW2 Luftwaffe air raid; painful deaths from poisoned sausages; the excavation of medieval monks; the Al Capone connection ... and the arrival in Scotland of more of St Andrew's bones.
