'The history of the ... cittie of Verulamium ... the martyrdom of St Alban, the first buylding of the towne & monasterye bearinge his name, with many ancient funerall monuments ... writt in verse & prose': the preface is signed 'John Shrimpton.'

This is a rambling account of Verulam and St. Alban's of no critical value, partly in verse: imperfect at end.
