... one of these days I'll put them in alphabetical order... there again, perhaps it's more fun wading through them & finding ones you weren't expecting...

N.B. TEACHERS & PARENTS: I checked these links at the time of putting them here. I cannot chase all the links to links, neither can I keep checking every day, so I cannot be responsible for the content you may find. They all seemed alright at the time.

If you want to ask a question, spot click here to email me , & I'll try to reply. I'll try to get the answer for you too! If it takes a little while, please be patient...

If you click on any of the links in this list you should find it opens a small window. In case you don't already know: to see the window full size click on the "maximize" button, which is usually the small square, top right. To leave that site & return to mine, just close the window, usually by clicking on the small X top right.

Historic - Before working in Coventry for a Heritage Open Days w/e as couple of years ago I researched some of the history of this city on the web, and this was the site I used. By happy chance I met Rob Orland and his family during the weekend. Here's his positively enormous site - Coventry has more of interest than you may expect!
(... and on the "Links" pages you'll find my site, and also my wife's lovely harp site)

Heuristics HEURISTICS - alias Don & Kathryn Holton. What can I say adequately about this irrepressible and energetic duo, who know more about period technology, especially methods of time keeping, than most of us will ever hope to half remember ... and who ALWAYS treat their audiences with reverence and due seriousness???
... and with whom I/we do a great double act from time to time!

RAPHAEL FALCONRY, being the inspiring Mike & Emma Raphael, and their falcons and other birds. Mike & Emma have astonishing knowledge and devotion to their art,and claim with some pride to be the only truly authentic historic falconers at work in Britain; and I/we get the joy of working with them now & then

ABSOLUTELY SUPERBLY informative site about Victorian WORKHOUSES:
