The Tale of Milton Abbas - Richeldis Wansbrough

Dorset Publishing Company, 1974, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. Wraps rubbed at the edges. Text bright and tight.

The reader will find this book to represent the outline of the history of Milton Abbas. The further the story recedes into the past, the clearer becomes the tale of its former greatness, and its inventory in Domesday Book is that of the largest settlement in Dorset. Before the Roman conquest, the area had a denser population than most of this island. Later, the kingdom of Wessex of which it was central absorbed its less vigorous neighbours and the tale of the prosperity of its fertile land covers the middle ages. This book gives the outline of a rich and romantic story. Fold out map to rear page.
