Filled with fascinating stories from throughout Ireland's 13,000 year history, this volume presents unusual episodes that are often left out of history books. Historian Turtle Bunbury provides an entertaining and off-beat take on monumental events like the Wars of the Roses, the Tudor Conquest and the Battle of the Boyne, as well as the Home Rule campaign and the Great War. Characters include a pair of ill- fated prehistoric chieftains, a psychopathic Viking, a gallant Norman knight, a dazzling English traitor, an ingenious tailor, an outstanding war-horse, a brothel queen, an insanely prolific sculptor, and a randy prince. Woodcut illustrations.
