Boudica to Raedwald - East Anglia's Relations with Rome
Boudica and Raedwald are two of the dominant characters in the early history of East Anglia, the English counties of Norfolk and Suffolk. What do we know about them and about the thread of continuity that links them? How close did Boudica come to driving the Roman army out of Britain in AD61? What influence did four centuries of Roman rule have on Raedwald, whose grave ship at Sutton Hoo contained such fabulous treasures?
In seeking answers to these questions, John Fairclough examines the discoveries of archaeologists over the past hundred years. Click the shopping basket below to order your copy of Boudica to Raedwald - East Anglia's Relations to Rome online, or ask at your local bookshop.

Ships & Shipyards of Ipswich 1700-1970
As long ago as 1294 the shipwrights of Ipswich were building a galley for the King's navy, and the town on the Orwell continued to be a leading ship-building centre until the 20th century. Schooners, brigs, ketches and the great Indiamen were amongst the vessesls built over the years. The author opens a window on a significant part of the town's history.
Hugh Moffat's ancestors include several Ipswich mariners, so it need occasion no surprise that a maritime interest began to grow when he was in his teens. This book makes a major contribution to the maritime history of an anceint east coast port.
