If it's grim, ghastly, grisly or gruesome and it happened in Berkshire in the last 1,500 years, chances are Roger Long has investigated it. He has spent many, many hours searching the archives for evidence of the darker side of Berkshire life and brings his findings together in this day-by-day guide. Almanac entries include: - A publican with a special tilting bed that dropped his victims into a pot of boiling fat - A farmer who slew three wives and boiled up the remains of one of them - The story of Danny Grimshaw, the bogey man conjured up by mothers to threaten their children - The man hanged for forging a GBP1 cheque - The gruesome display of a murder victim's body where his family charged a penny a look Roger Long describes his collection of true stories as 'Not for the squeamish'.
