A Boatload of History

erasmusThere are plenty of history books written about the North East of England but not many like “A Boatload Of History” by Erasmus Bottle. This is a fascinating tale of world events as seen from the bar of a South Shields pub. Unfettered by the historians usual insistence on factual accuracy, Bottle tells it as it was (or may have been). In real life Erasmus is Tyneside writer Dave Walker.
