Britain and the Celtic Iron Age


by Simon James and Valery Rigby. Published by British Museum Press. ISBN 0 7141 2306 4
I got this book out the library for research into this period in time and I am really impressed with it. There aren’t many books about the Iron Age, but some of the ones on Amazon are about £160!! This one is an affordable £9.99 and basically tells you all you need to know if you have an interest or are doing a school project. Many of the other books of this period are written by historians who get so wrapped up in their own opinions and theories about the lifestyles of these people who lived so long ago, they forget to look at the evidence.
According to the blurb, Simon James and Valery Rigby work at the British Museum, and obviously know their subject, while writing in clear English for all to understand. All their information is backed up by archaeological evidence and we’re told exactly which excavation it came from. When they make theories, we’re told the reasons why, and not simply told this is fact, like other writers (and television presenters) do.
The book is also well presented with diagrams and photos on every page so we’re not faced with boring text and we get more of a feel for the age. It has definitely helped me out and I recommend it highly.

A quick review of The Mitre restaurant in Oxford

My trip to Oxford was a year ago now, but I found this review in my notebook, so I thought I’d type it up as it could be useful to someone visiting Oxford. Just to fill you in, as part of my Christmas and birthday presents, I had a little two-night stay in a lovely hotel near the city, all by myself. It was heaven! Anyway, you can never go wrong with a Beefeater restaurant, so I tried the one on Oxford High Street called The Mitre….
Rogue theatre company review
Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
