Purchases

Here is me in my bargain topshop dress found on ebay

Forgive me if I am wrong, but this dress was a sell-out item about 2 and a half years ago and I did not have the money to purchase it (poor student syndrome). At teh moment I am scouring ebay and buying items i could not afford originally.
Since leaving college and working, its been difficult to part with my well earned money... £38 is a ridiculous amount to spend on a cardigan that gets bobbles after a single wash (topshop you are worst offender). Wandering around charity shops and finding bargains is a thrill, and you're giving to charity at the same time! I think i spent a total of £30 in Cancer Research at the beginning of this year!

Originally a motte-and-bailey then, this was thrown up after the battle of Hastings in order to monitor the route from the Midlands to London - serving as a strategic fortification for William I. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, mentions Berkhamsted as the place where the archbishop of York, Edgar aetheling, earl Edwin and earl Morcar, surrendered to William (they probably didn't have any choice):

'He (William) went up with all the army that was left to him, and those who had since come over the sea, and ravaged all the parts he went over, until he came to Berkhamsted. There he was met by archbishop Aldred, child Edgar, eorl Edwin, eorl Morkere and all the best men of London'

So was Berkhamsted castle thrown up before or after the men surrendered? Well, before it was held by Robert of Mortain (William's younger half-brother), Domesday Book reveals that the town was held by Ea…

My second gig this year, still can't believe it!



The View were awesome!<3 nbsp="" p="">
Earlier on in the day, we attended the British Library's Russian Revolution exhibition - Click, and it was brilliant, very detailed. And you don't even have to be a History Undergraduate like me to take it in/enjoy it :) Beginning with the peasant emancipation and ending with Lenin's death, it's a modern Historian's dream!

We were also very lucky with the weather!



My next post will be about Berkhamsted Castle.

Blakes Wood

There's nothing more relaxing than a walk in the woods. And Blakes Wood in Danbury is the perfect place to go in order to 'blow the cobwebs away' <3 p="">
