82 Darvill, Timothy Prehistoric Britain.
Yale University Press 1987 0300039514 / 9780300039511  Hardcover in DJ. Good/Good  Quarto 
223 pp

"In this book Timothy Darvill makes use of available archaeological evidence to examine the development of human societies in Britain from earliest times to the Roman Conquest. Darvill gives special attention to six themes that are traced through all phases of prehistory: subsistence, technology, ritual, trade, society, and population. Throughout, emphasis is given to documenting and explaining changes within these prehistoric communities, and to exploring the regional variations found around Britain. Darvill rounds off his study with a review of the effects of prehistoric communities on life today."

William the Conqueror : The Norman Impact on England., Douglas, David
90 Douglas, David William the Conqueror : The Norman Impact on England.
University of California Press 1964. Hardcover in DJ. Good/Good Octavo 
476 pp

"No medieval King is more famous than William the Conqueror, and no event in the whole of English history has been more debated than the Norman conquest... a fresh analysis has been made both of the causes, and of the true character, of the Norman impact upon England in the eleventh century.

In two respects the book may be said to make a new approach to the subject. Professor Douglas has sought to disregard such polemic as extraneous to the circumstances of the eleventh century and to interpret his subject in the only proper way, which is through the medium of contemporary evidence. Secondly, he takes the view that the Norman influence on England can never be adequately assessed unless a fresh attempt is made to appraise and explain the political and ecclesiastical character of the Normandy which confronted England in 1066."

308 pp Much about the battles of Dunbar and Inverkeithing, two important engagements of the Third English Civil War. The Battle of Inverkeithing was notable due to the audacity of Cromwell in ordering a sea-born invasion of Fife, on the northern shore of the Firth of Forth. If successful, which it was, it would result in a flanking of the main Scottish position at Sterling. While not as large as some other battles, this battle helped to turn the overall tide of the Third English Civil War.

@ 60 pp. " William Kempe (died ?1603), also spelt Kemp, was an English actor and dancer specialising in comic roles and best known for having been one of the original players in early dramas by William Shakespeare. Roles associated with his name may include the great comic creation, Falstaff, and his contemporaries considered him the successor to the great clown of the previous generation Richard Tarlton... In February and March of 1600, he undertook what he would later call his "Nine Days Wonder", in which he morris danced from London to Norwich (a distance of over a hundred miles) in a journey which took him nine days spread over several weeks, often amid cheering crowds. Later that year he published a description of the event in order to prove to doubters that it was true." Wikipedia
