A review

Olivia Whitcomb's book 'Invaders of Canvey' is a History of Canvey Island from the earliest times with her particular interest in the pieces of pottery that can be found on the Island.  She gives a detailed study into how these were made using the clay collected from several different locations on the Island. She also looks into the sea wall and the causes of the breach in 1953. This is another interesting book with a different slant to Canvey's History. Olivia's book can be borrowed from Canvey Library.
