Whether esoteric ornaments in Elizabethan gardens, monuments in the landscape, tributes to sacrifice in war or memorials to worthy lives, they all have fascinating stories. From its unusual standpoint this well-researched, well-illustrated book illuminates episodes in the history of Warwickshire and the wider world.
