Press features regarding the new book 'The Transformation of Freemasonry'

The above article reports on a book signing event which I did at the famous Curiosity Book shop in Runcorn, Cheshire, which specialises in local history. The event included the local press, members of the local Ellesmere Lodge which used to meet in The Masonic Pub there in the later part of the 19th century, and members of the public. The books sold out in the end so the signing went well! Here is the online link: http://www.runcornandwidnesweeklynews.co.uk/runcorn-widnes-news/runcorn-widnes-local-news/2009/06/18/dr-david-harrison-of-liverpool-university-signs-copies-of-the-genesis-of-freemasonry-at-the-curiosity-bookshop-55368-23900848/

The above feature is from the Runcorn Weekly News and Chester Chronicle, and discusses how a pub in Runcorn, Cheshire, called The Masonic, was an early example of a Masonic Hall in the area and was visited by a number of high ranking Freemasons during the later 19th century such as Lord De Tabley when he was Provincial Grand Master of Cheshire. This is also explored in the new book 'The Transformation of Freemasonry'.

Above is a feature in the Daily Post which mentions the Liverpool Masonic Rebellion of 1823, a subject which is discussed in my second book 'The Transformation of Freemasonry'. The gravestone in the picture, which shows the mysterious Masonic symbols of the 'All-seeing Eye' and the Compass and Set-Square, can be found in St. James' cemetery in Liverpool below the Anglican Cathedral. The gravestone has its own unique Masonic story which is retold in the new book.
