Historical Enigmas: Historical Whodunits And Enigmas Of History
In the fifties Hugh Ross Williamson gave a series of brilliant broadcasts on some of the mysteries of the past. Using the techniques of modern detection, he set about finding answers to such questions as: Did Buckingham poison James I? Who ws the executioner of Charles I? Who was the Man in the Iron Mask? Re-evaluating the evidence, alert alike to the distortions of contemporary and more recent propaganda, working out probabilities in the light of character and motive, but careful never to contradict known facts, he came up with answers that were controversial and stimulating. Could William Rufus have been a pagan sacrificial victim? Was Queen Elizabeth an accessory to the murder of Amy Robsart? Could Queen Victoria's accession have been delayed had Queen Caroline's trial revealed more? Hugh Ross Williamson's creative treatment of history has long delighted readers of historical fiction as his recent informal biography of Christopher Marlowe, Kind Kit now does. Here are two of his most exciting books, Historical Whodunits and Engimas of History back in print together in one volume. The chapters on the Kirk o' Field and the Gunpowder Plot have been heavily revised in the light of later research.
