Visit Cumbria's Past
Based on my Adult Education course of the same name, this is not a standard history. It aims to do what the title suggests, give the reader places to visit and things to see within the context of the History of Cumbria (in the north-west of England). In that respect it is selective in that it gives more weight to the visible remains of the past and in that it is heavily biased towards north Cumbria and places that can be reached as part of a day trip from the City of Carlisle. I am a firm believer in history as an active rather then a passive pursuit. I hope to show you where to go, what to see and how to look - and I hope to inspire a few to get really active and begin their own research.
