Heart of Albion
Max Wade-Matthews is a Leicestershire local historian and geneaologist who, in spite of being a 'foreigner' (born in Norwich and moved to Leicester in 1982), involved himself deeply in the history of his adopted city. In 2004 he moved to Riga in Latvia and is now immersing himself in the city's history.
The most recent title by Max is the CD-ROM A Virtual Walk Around Leicester. Heart of Albion has also published his comprehensive survey of Sepulchral Effigies in Leicestershire and Rutland (also on CD-ROM), his book Musical Leicester, and a series of four booklets based on the transcriptions of monuments inside the five medieval churches in Leicester which are enlivened by short biographical accounts of the more notable people buried there and provide a novel insight into Leicester's history (sorry, two of these booklets are now out of print).
Previous titles by Max Wade-Matthews published by Heart of Albion but now out of print are Great Glen – The Story of a Leicestershire Village and Grave Matters, a guide to Leicester's Victorian cemetery on Welford Road.
However all the contents of Grave Matters are included in the CD-ROM A Virtual Walk Around Leicester.
