Overview
-

Marilyn Yurdan was born in Oxford, the idea for the book came from her research where she quickly learned that the idyllic City of Dreaming Spires is very far from an accurate view of life in Oxford over the ages. The Dark Side of Oxford ranges from the 13th century to late-Victorian times and paints a fascinating and sometimes shocking picture of how our ancestors lived and died.
