"Suffolk: Strange But True" describes many unusual, odd and extraordinary people, places and events from this fascinating county. Featured within these pages are tales of 'the fasting woman of Shottisham', who was alleged not to have eaten for five months; the Suffolk man who invented the word 'communism'; local heroines; pioneering entrepreneurs; spectacular ruins and castles; lost towns and villages; extraordinary pets and animals; and, unusual art treasures found in Suffolk churches. Local customs, folklore and legends are also examined, including 'the race of the bogmen', and the Southwold competition to discover an 'alternative umbrella'. Using a range of old and new illustrations, Robert Halliday tells an entertaining alternative history of Suffolk that will fascinate residents and visitors alike.
