Jacqueline Riding

Shining light on dark history

Despite the books written and the recent movie from Mike Leigh, the massacre of Peterloo remains a little-known chapter of British history. Jacqueline Riding, historical consultant on films including the award-winning Mr Turner, has penned a new book about the day, 200 years ago, when the British army turned its weapons onto a Lancashire field of peaceful protestors who simply sought electoral reform.
