My friend Clare sent me a copy of Real Chester, her hot-off-the-presses travelogue about the city of Chester in England. It's a fascinating place, its Roman walls enclosing a space in which historical strata are piled on top of one another, where the modern abuts the ancient and medieval in a living city. The amount of history you can trip over in Chester is astounding. This is a place where you can see Roman ruins in the closet of a clothing store if you know to ask about them at the counter.
The book isn't available on Amazon.com, yet, but you can pick up a copy from Amazon.co.uk.
