Peter Of Packmoor was a significant translator of books in Stoke in the eleventh century.
Translating books from Latin into pictures, he made literature popular and accessible for the common man, and was hailed a hero of his time.
Also known as Peter The Perv, most of the books he translated were graphic in nature, or had extra graphic materials added to his translated version. His version of the bible is largely sexual in nature.
He is remembered in Stoke in a statue tribute, currently residing in the cellar of Hanley Cathedral, though it once sat proudly in the city centre, right about where the Sir Stanley Matthews statue is now.
