Setting Description:
The locations are the historic cities of Chester, York and Durham, the most important cities of the north until the industrial revolution. Chester and York were Roman towns and housed two of the three legions in the province of Britannia. All three cities were very important medieval cities with powerful guilds and bishops/archbishops. In the industrial revolution, York became a major railway centre. All three cities are located in beautiful countryside with many museums and historic buildings. The cathedrals in York and Durham are the most impressive in the north. Chester and York both include fully intact medieval city walls.
