Coventry History Articles

Many fine articles have been written about Coventry's history. Most get published in books and can be found in the public domain; however, many fine pieces of writing get either lost in the mists of time, released only to a few select historians, or simply never get the publicity they deserve. With the kind permission of the necessary people, I include here a selection of fascinating elements of Coventry's history, which, I hope, will help to expand our knowledge of this city's complex, exciting and often obscure past.
