Description - Chester: A History by Simon Ward

In the 20th century the decision over whether to preserve or replace its historic core gave the city fathers one of their greatest challenges. Chester was for many centuries the major urban centre in north-west England, often being at the forefront of national events, and encapsulated the nation's history in its fabric. This beautifully illustrated book explores the city through the ages and looks at the people who contributed to its intriguing story. Draws on studies of numerous archaeologists and historians, besides using the surviving historic fabric of the city.
