Old Ways - Robert Macfarlane "A Journey on Foot", reads the subtitle, but this is the story of many journeys. Fifteen of them are made by Macfarlane himself, along paths in the British Isles and, further afield, in Spain, Palestine and Tibet. He invokes, as he goes, hundreds of previous walkers, and hundreds of pathways across silt, sand, granite, water, snow each with its different rhythms and secrets. So the book is a tribute to the variety and complexity of the "old ways" that are often now forgotten as we go past in the car, but which were marked out by the footfall of generations. And it is an affirmation of their connectedness as part of a great network linking ways and wayfarers of every sort. Following Macfarlane's many travels, one understands why he thinks of his project as "a journey", singular rather than plural. "Leys, dykes, drongs, sarns, snickets bostles, shuts, driftways, lichways, ridings " Macfarlane will have many of his readers dreaming in path-language this summer.

Geschichte Englands Vor-Römisches England[Bearbeiten] Die Geschichte Englands beginnt im Grunde mit der Entstehung der Insel. In der Mesolithischen Periode, etwa um 8500 v.

Die Sächsische Eroberung[Bearbeiten] Angelsächsischer Goldhelm aus der Ausgrabungsstätte Sutton Hoo Die Ankömmlinge siedelten in Ostanglien, den Midlands, dem östlichen Yorkshire und in Lincolnshire und vertrieben dabei teilweise die einheimische Bevölkerung. Die Kleinkönigreiche[Bearbeiten] Die Besiedlung Englands um 600 Die neuen Siedlungsgebiete waren zunächst gemäß der Stammes- und Gruppenstruktur der kontinentalen Gebiete organisiert. Die politische Vorrangstellung der einzelnen Königreiche dokumentierte sich in der Person eines Oberherrschers, der erst im 9. Die Besiedelung durch die Angelsachsen stellte einen deutlichen Bruch gegenüber der römischen Herrschaft dar.

The Local Rose - Holistic living | Organic recipes | Delicious and healthy food moodboard I started this blog almost 7 years ago when I was newly engaged and living in a small town. Missing the creative energy that had surrounded me in Los Angeles, I took to the internet. One day I stumbled across Flickr, and more importantly, its online community. After posting my own personal and collected images people started asking me if I had a blog. The writing was something I was missing from Flickr. I started my blog as a way to join this community, which lacked the polished fantasy of magazines, but had the realism of chatting with your stylish sister, just one that lived far away. When the blogging world exploded the intimacy of that community went away. For me the online world got boring and weird fast, and I didn't want to be part of the way things were at the moment. Instead of writing I started an Instagram account to post more immediate things and a Pinterest account which is the easiest way to remember where I found an image.
