The Little Book of Oxfordshire

The Little Book of Oxfordshire

The Little Book of Oxfordshire is a funny, fact-packed compendium of the sort of frivolous, fantastic or simply strange information no one will want to be without. Here we find out about the most unusual crimes and punishments, eccentric inhabitants, and hundreds of interesting facts (plus some authentically bizarre bits of historical trivia). Combining essential details with little-known and entertaining information and quotations, this book is a highly engaging guide to where you are, what to look out for now you’re here, and how on earth all this came to be.
