Historian Michael Chandler brings us a unique historical account of some of the great women who helped nurture Norfolk to become what it is today. From suffragettes marching in Norwich and the first female jockey to compete against a man, to the female Scarlet Pimpernel who died a pauper in France, this A-Z contains tales of witchcraft, heroines, authors, teachers and numerous accounts of bravery and fortitude.
Through the individual stories of these fascinating women, Historical Women of Norfolk will educate, entertain and inspire the residents of this wonderful county and those from further afield, with illustrations that will help the reader step back into the past.
