Bloody British History (Paperback)

Marianne Colloms


* OUTBREAK: Deadly Camden epidemics of LEPROSY, CHOLERA and PLAGUE! * My wife is under the floor! The true story of Camden murderer DOCTOR CRIPPEN! * The elephants are stampeding! WEIRD ACCIDENTS and STRANGE EVENTS galore! Camden has a dark side to rival that of any London borough. The first murderer to be caught using transatlantic cable lived in Camden and the last woman to be hanged shot her lover outside a Hampstead pub. Riots, disasters and accidents feature heavily in the area's history: many residents, for example, were caught up in the worst ice-skating accident ever recorded in England, when the ice on the lake in Regent's Park gave way. With grave robbers and grisly graveyard exhumations, eccentric residents and countless weird true events, you'll never see the area in the same way again!
