i just noticed that this blog hit 5,000 pageviews yesterday. Cool!
To wit: Remember the last post? About the Story of England by Michael Wood? Well, I came across a link to an article Michael Wood wrote, about Britain’s first black community, dating from Elizabeth England.
I love the excerpts from the parish register. A real taste of average people’s lives back then. And the stories he writes about Mary Fillis and Lucy remind me of the stories detailed in the doctoral dissertation I have combed through for research. Real minority people, in the past, and their stories, living among a majority population.
I’ll be posting later today about the last of Hollow Crown series, Henry V.
