Researching York Pubs with Nathen Amin

Ever wondered about the history of your favourite York pubs?  Coming to the York Explore Library on July 12th Nathen Amin will discuss how he researched the city’s most historic establishments for his book, York Pubs, and his findings during a year-long journey through York’s famous watering holes. He will discuss his research journey in putting the book together, which pubs he went into, including all the records and what he found out. We think it will be of interest to people into local history and/or pubs, which we most certainly are! Details are still in the pipeline but there may even be beer on sale in the library and possibly a York Brewery stall, we will confirm this at a later date. Nathen will definitely have some of his books on sale though and we urge you to pick up a copy!

Nathen Amin grew up in the heart of Carmarthenshire, West Wales, and has long had an interest in Welsh history, the Wars of the Roses and the early Tudor period. His first book Tudor Wales was released in 2014 and was well-received, followed by a second book called York Pubs in 2016. He is currently working on the first, full-length biography of the Beaufort family, the House of Beaufort, which is scheduled for release in the summer of 2017. He is the founder of the Henry Tudor Society and has featured discussing the Tudors on BBC radio and television, as well as in print and online media across the UK. He has a degree in Business and Journalism and now lives in York, where he works as a Technical Writer.
