Maldon and moving house!!!

The reason why I have not blogged for a little while, is because my boy and I moved into our first flat together last week (eeeeeeeeek).
I still have not sorted out my clothes and books so the bedroom is a bit of a state at the moment (heh).

We decided to drive down to Maldon today for a little break (a break from writing, tidying and buying flowers) because one was duly needed.
The Museum in the park, is £2 to get in and mainly consists of a lot of Maldon's local history (the Battle of Maldon, the overweight Edward Bright, the Roman occupation etc.).
Photos were not allowed unfortunately but if you fancy seeing a Victorian washroom, a WWII living room and a penny farthing.... then head down ;) its run by volunteers and boy do they do an ace job.

This afternoon i will crack on with both my adult Historical novel and my new children's story set in WWII.
My adult novel is coming along nicely and started the 3rd edit on Friday... still hasn't got a title yet though!

Berkhamsted Castle

Back in May, we travelled to Hertfordshire to visit Berkhamsted's Norman motte-and-bailey castle.



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="">
