Finally!

Hello! You'll be pleased to know that I am still alive :) I started a new job nearly 3 weeks ago, then my camera decided to die so that is why I have been incognito for a while.

These pictures are from our trip to Colchester over a month ago... and yes, I have posted the yellow coat photo again :)

It has been difficult in trying to keep up with my novel... after getting home at 17:30 everyday, all I want to do, is relax. Thankfully, my lovely boy is being very supportive and is helping me out a lot by knowing when to leave me be haha. Just last night whilst I was pouring over the Welsh invasions during Edward I's reign, he was eating crisps and watching Indiana Jones!

Anyway, I have been bought a camera for Christmas, so expect more picture heavy posts in the New Year!

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="">
