About this and that, mainly history.
I am a retired professional spending my time reading, especially about:
- the history of my home town, King’s Lynn
- the Long Eighteenth Century, usually regarded as 1688-1815
- some of the interesting characters I’ve stumbled across from the medieval period
- the history of the English language, especially in relation to place-names
I’ve been playing with words in a variety of ways all my life, and I’ve found that writing helps me make sense of material. I hope you find it worth your while too.
I’m not perfect, so if you think I’ve got something wrong, please do let me know.
