A quick glance through the God’s House Cartulary has helped with some of my thinking, which is at the stage of needing some refining. Apart from that it has been a rather frustrating week. The one book I hoped to get hold of is not yet available and academic hardbacks are now so expensive that in a time of endless cuts to budgets they are likely to be beyond the reach of even university libraries, forcing us to resort to ebooks, with all the inconvenience they cause.
Attempting to find a publisher remains, like the book itself, a ‘work-in-process’.
A new working week, and I’m looking forward to seeing what lies ahead, including adding detail to my bibliography. With a friendly warning to avoid the university library for the time being, I shall also be checking Muse for latest articles.
