Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk, lies on the estuary of the River Orwell in East Anglia. The town has a rich and varied history with continued human habitation dating back to at least the fifth century. As a result, it has grown up with England from its earliest beginnings and has witnessed untold changes from the Norman Conquest - when the town's name was recorded in the Little Domesday Book of 1086 as Gepeswiz - to the Industrial Revolution, which saw the re-emergence of the town as a thriving port. Ipswich History Tour is a unique insight into the illustrious history of this famous Suffolk town, its well-known streets and famous faces, and explains what they meant to local people throughout the nineteenth and into the twentieth century. Readers are invited to follow a timeline of events and watch the changing face of Ipswich as author Caleb Howgego guides us through the local streets.
Born and bred in Ipswich, Caleb Howgego developed a fascination for the town's history early on. He has a BA in History and Politics from the University of East Anglia, runs his own blog on the local history of Ipswich and has worked for the Colchester and Ipswich Museum Service.
