Boston, as any Bostonian will proudly tell you, has a long history of achievements and a fine heritage of preserved buildings and structures. Built on the banks of the River Witham in the late eleventh century, the town soon grew to be the busiest port outside of London. As a member of the Hanseatic League of North Sea and Baltic ports, with its widely famed annual fairs and markets, it was a lively and cosmopolitan place in the Middle Ages.This intriguing town - home to the mighty St Botolph's church, or Boston Stump, which towers over the town and surrounding Fens, and the birthplace of so many historically important figures and movements - has seen great change and growth over the past few centuries. A journey through Boston's history will delight visitors and residents alike. What better way to do this than to turn the pages of this beautifully illustrated book and experience Boston through time?
