|The Ancient Schools of Gloucester by David Evans|
A message from the author:
‘I have recently produced a book entitled ‘The Ancient Schools of Gloucester’. It tells the story of the development of education in Gloucester from its monastic origins around the time of the Norman Conquest through to the Industrial Revolution. As you would imagine, a substantial part of the book refers to the history of the Crypt School and the medieval city grammar school run by Llanthony Priory which preceded the Crypt. Of the 17 chapters, there are in fact 6 that either wholly or substantially relate to the Crypt’.
With the support of Crypt School, David will be presenting a copy to the school at some point in November.
Hardback, with 267 pages and 100 photographs, the book is on sale on Amazon, at Discover DeCrypt, at the Cathedral and at the Heritage Hub for £25.
David is able to offer a discounted price of £22 for direct sales, please email David at: firstname.lastname@example.org which includes free delivery to any address within Gloucester City.
