Experience 100 key dates that shaped Leicester's history, highlighted its people's genius (or stupidity) and embraced the unexpected. Featuring an amazing mix of social, criminal and sporting events, this book reveals a past that will fascinate, delight and even shock both residents and visitors of the city. 16 February 1847 - The Whipping Toms, a group of men with license to whip any person remaining at the Shrove Tuesday Fair after 2 p.m., made one final stand before the tradition was abolished. 19 November 1940 - A total of 150 bombs fell on the city as part of what came to be known as the `Leicester Blitz', in which 108 people were killed and 284 injured. 4 February 2013 - Leicester University confirmed that the skeleton found under a car park in the city in 2012 was that of King Richard III.
