One of our most popular titles, is the re-print of C. Johnson’s book ‘An Account of the Ely and Littleport Riots in 1816’ which gives a detailed look at the Littleport Riots triggered by the compounded impact of the eruption of Mount Tambora in Indonesia, the Corn Laws, and the end of the Napoleonic Wars.

Re-typeset, this book is a compelling look back at the night the people of Ely and Littleport rioted, and follows the fates through the courts of those arrested, including the five men who were hanged.
