Clarence book signing

 

 

Less well known than his brothers, Edward IV and Richard III, little has been written about George, Duke of Clarence. George played a central role in the Ward of the Roses, played out by his family. But was George for York or Lancaster? Is the story of his drowning in a barrel of wine really true?


 


In his new book, The Third Plantagenet, John Ashdown-Hill brings us a new full biography of George, Duke of Clarence, which exposes the myths surrounding this important Plantagenet prince, and reveals the fascinating results of John's recent re-examination of the Clarence vault and its contents.


 


The book is now available in the Abbey shop at £16.99 and John will be in the shop for a book signing on Saturday 3 May 2014.
