798 – Sunday

An unusual day, we didn’t do very much. Last night I wanted to read a couple of pages of A History of Hampshire and I started looking for the book but couldn’t find it. Most frustrating but I found it this morning languishing a place where it had fallen. I’ve now managed to read the first chapter.

I enjoyed reading that chapter, it was an “easy read”, that means for me good writing. Naturally it covered the introduction of people onto what we now know as Hampshire, but of course I don’t think the county boundaries or what ever boundaries they had 1,000 BCE. Many of the people from then interacted with different parts of the country, apparently commonalities have been found between people living in Hampshire and those from Dorset. I hope the book explores that a bit more.

The book mentions many place names such as Portsdown and Butser, even this early in the book. There are quite a few so I think I need to compile a list of place names as they may be well worth a visit.

The book mentions old tracks, I wonder if there is a printed map showing all barrows and hill forts. I’d really like to get that and find out if there are ley lines to be drawn. I bet there are.

I have to go back to the street photography book now. They are both a draw, plus I have the Lee Miller story to read as well.

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.
