Stratford-Upon-AvonStratford-Upon-Avon (Horrible Histories) Stratford-Upon-Avon, birthplace of the brilliant bard. A quaint and cute tourist town today, Shakespeare's Stratford was far from pleasant and Terry Deary reveals the civil war struggles and brutal beheadings that made its history so horrible. Readers can explore all the horrible highlights of the town using the frightful fold-out map, including spooky Sheep Street, home of an awful axeman, a weird witch and possibly the most haunted house in England.

History Of Stratford Upon AvonThe History of an English Borough: Stratford-upon-Avon, 1196-1996 Tour Stratford Upon Avon. Few towns of Stratford-upon-Avon's modest size are so well known, not only in Great Britain but throughtout the world. This fame is to be attributed to the fact that England's national poet and playwright was born, brought up and buried there, but this is not all that makes Stratford an historic town. For the first 700 years of its existence, Stratford was a successful market town, and its history is still reflected in the town's surviving features: its medieval Guild of the Holy Cross, its timber-framed shops and houses, and its public buildings of the 18th and 19th centuries. This book, published to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the granting of the borough charter, contains 11 contributions from leading historians on periods of the town's history, ranging from a study of the early Romano-British and Anglo-Saxon settlements to an examination of the growth of tourist patronage over the last 150 years.
