Brislington Bulletins 1066-1600 began as “something mediaeval” an idea for my BA dissertation, but when the project became top-heavy, sparse for the early period, and too much at the end, it was unworkable. So what to do with the jumble of notes I had accrued? “I know”, I thought, I’ll do something similar to the Annals of Kingswood, my other collection from a few years before…. “Brislington” was not intended to be an ongoing project, but you know how it is!
In the end it turned into seven volumes and a supplement covering the years 1066-1840!
