It will take in many facets of Leeds history, one or two familiar like the creation of Briggate in 1207 but many that peek into the shadows, of ordinary people like ‘Little Alice Musgrave’ who was the first person to die in the plague of 1645.

Leeds, The Biography is published by the unstoppable Armley Press.
