The website also offers

a variety of essays related to the various cities, towns and villages throughout Britain.
These essays
hope to provide a picture of "as it was" in previous periods. Browse the links shown on the left to see some of the contributions.

The main emphasis
will be on social conditions and therefore on the lives of people in general. In this setting, direct knowledge, expertise, individual experiences, what you've read or "what your mother told you" are of particular value.
Contributions - however large or small - are invited. Anything from a few paragraphs to a long essay would be considered. It is your chance to become a "published" author on behalf of yourself and the place in which you live (or any place that you know about) and have your contribution recorded on this website.
