The foulest of deeds in Oxfordshire…
Foul Deeds & Suspicious Deaths Around Oxfordshire
Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths Around Oxfordshire takes the reader on a fascinating journey from the medieval period to the nineteenth century, meeting villains, cut-throats, highwaymen and even a cannibal pig along the way. The book is based on original documents from Oxfordshire Record Office, any of which are from obscure collections unseen for decades. From the sinister seventeenth century clergyman known as The black Rat, to that elegant gentleman of the road James Hind, it investigates the dark side of a country now known for Cotswold scenery and the world’s most famous university.
