Happily, for anyone who could not make it to Southampton recent SO: To Speak Festival of Words in person but might want a copy of Bevis of Hampton copies will be available through Blackwells in Portsmouth and can be ordered online or by other means through the shop. As there is no ISBN for this special festival edition the title, my name, and the fact that the cover carries the reference to it as a limited festival edition will be the means of identifying it.
In response to several enquires and comments, work is already underway to produce a children’s version of the translation suitably adapted, and with additional explanations. My hope is also to include directions for a walk around Southampton’s walls. These already take place, but linking the story to the landscape may add interest for young people.
