the long furrow


The sensitively selected accounts of the way things were, recalled by the survivors of a past generation, coupled with the Cooper family's interest in the Roman occupation of the area, makes this work a very valuable contribution to the recorded history of England.

Heart of Our History


This book explores village and parish life along the Suffolk-Essex border from about 1500. "Researching the early chapter in Record Offices and Libraries was utterly engrosing. Meeting some 90 local people - and recording their memories - for the later sections was an unforgettable experience and privilege."
