‘Living in the past. It’s always said pejoratively, as if the past is necessarily inferior to the future, or at any rate less important; nobody’s ever condemned for looking forward, only back. But the truth is that we live in the past, whether we like it or not. That’s where our life takes shape. Somewhere ahead, however near or far, is the end. But behind, shrouded in clouds of forgetting, lies the beginning’.
This book about Scarborough IS unashamedly about looking back from the first mention of Scarborough in 8000 BC to the present day.
It is not a formal history; rather a miscellany of interesting facts culled from many sources stretching back over the years.
