Every Place Has a History by Andrew Langley

Parks, settlements, battlefields, and burial grounds - we are surrounded by historic places. Many of them look ordinary, yet they may have surprising stories to tell. What happened there? What were their links with other events and people? And who first found out their history? This book will help you discover these hidden tales for yourself. It explains basic research techniques, and guides you to the best places to find revealing evidence.
