Description

A stirring account of the Northumbrians and their astonishing contribution to British and global history. Why is the North East the most distinctive region of England? Where do the stereotypes about North Easterners come from, and why are they so often misunderstood? In this wide-ranging new history of the people of North-East England, Dan Jackson explores the deep roots of Northumbrian culture – hard work and heavy drinking, sociability and sentimentality, militarism and masculinity – in centuries of border warfare and dangerous and demanding work in industry, at sea and underground.
