789 – Maps

I like maps. I always have. Maps tell you lots of things about a place. If I had enough wall space, I would have a very big map. I’ve said in the past that I don’t like marking books, I have a different view of maps. Places of interest need to be highlighted.

I’ve spent a fair bit of time this week looking for books about the history of Hampshire. They’re are quite a few web sites about the county, but I can’t find a book about Hampshire. Actually, thinking about it I haven’t looked for the same book about Dorset. I suppose I should.

I know that Winchester has a lot of history that goes back a long way. The south coast has a much more recent history. I’m willing to bet there is a lot of history in between. I wonder about places or areas in between. Take for example East Meon The area has history going back to 2,000 BC. Even if there isn’t a book, places like Wikipedia can be a useful resource. I must admit I didn’t know about Meon, although I knew there was history.

I’ve just had a look at West Meon, that’s another place that looks interesting. I think both villages are worth a visit. I think the way to do this is to draw a name from random and look it up. Just those two villages alone seem to have a history that covers centuries. Most interesting.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
