“The dark cloud, which had been cleared by the Phoenician discoveries, and finally dispelled by the arms of Caesar, again settled on the shores of the Atlantic, and a Roman province [Britain] was again lost among the fabulous Islands of the Ocean” Edward Gibbon

This blog is about England – the history, traditions and culture of this ancient and fascinating place. Sometimes, of course, posts will touch on aspects of Welsh, Scottish, Irish and European history as well; no country is an island, divided from the main, and the bell that tolls for England, frequently tolls equally for Wales.
