Product Description

The River Boyne, Hidden legacies, history and lore explored on foot and by boat. By Anthony Holten. In this book the geography unfolds in a vibrant manner as the author examines the river in unprecedented detail; taking in its sources, tributaries, watermills, bridges and navigation, through exploration, history and folklore. Tony delves into lesser known or lost aspects of the river’s features, history and lore; from the early Norman period to the present. While noting well known antiquities, he refrains from re-writing well-trodden paths. Illustrated with over 400 photos, scetches and maps, the book brings the rich social, and economic life of the river into focus. Paperback. 640 pages B&W with colour covers. 230x152x40mm
