New softcover. Many remarkable women have been born in, or have strong connections with Yorkshire. This book chronicles the most infamous - including witches, thieves, fraudsters and murderers. Among many others are the calculating Queen Cartimandua, ruler of the Brigantes and arguably more powerful than her contemporary Boudicca; Mary Bateman, the Yorkshire witch, whose skin was flayed off, cut up and sold as good luck charms after her execution; Mary Newall of the Cragg Vale Coiners Gang, who roasted alive an informant, and Elizabeth Broadingham, who was burned at the stake for murdering her husband in 1776. Illustrated with a wide range of photographs and engravinhs - illustrating the criminals and their crimes, and the towns and villages of Yorkshire in days gone by. Illus., Bibliog. and Index. 128pp. 8vo. New softcover.
