John Grundy, the North East's favourite TV historian turns his attention to the history of Newcastle upon Tyne. In his inimitable style he tackles questions such as:

  • Where did the Roman bridge at Newcastle actually lead to?
  • What did St Wilfred choose as a holiday souvenir from his trip to Rome?
  • Why did medieval Newcastle need town walls?
  • How was Newcastle reviewed on the 17th century version of Trip Advisor?
  • Why did the Mayor of Newcastle burn down North Shields?
  • Where did Newcastle imprison the King?


Always knowledgeable, often funny and sometimes irreverent, this book will be treasured by anyone who is interested in our great regional capital.
