Book Summary:

Wiltshire, the most central county in England, is full of glorious countryside, historic buildings and a thriving city, towns and villages. However, lurking not far beneath its surface is a host of oddities and peculiarities that turn the apparently staid and conventional into something much more intriguing. With inspiration taken from old topographical books on the County of Wiltshire with their splash of monochrome photography, this volume bursts into colour into different themes of discovery, from public works of art to roadside furniture, all showing Wiltshire (and Swindon) in a different light. The main theme running through the book is an A-Z Gazetteer of places within the county and the appealing ¿ sometimes decidedly quirky ¿ objects and features to be discovered in them. With ordnance survey grid references shown for most of the subjects they can be readily found and it is, almost all, free to see. If you think you know Wiltshire, read this fascinating and profusely illustrated book and think again...

Book Summary:

Winning her class's full ride scholarship to Wiltshire University was supposed to be a game changer for Cali. After all, Wiltshire is the college to get into; made even more so by being the only college that no one has been able to buy, er donate, their way into. A degree from Wiltshire guarantees the recipient open doors to virtually anything, so Cali was beyond stoked when her admission letter arrived; you know, after a call to the registrar to make sure she wasn't part of a Punked reboot, and even if attending Wiltshire meant leaving behind her two best friends, Sawyer and Zane, whom she had all but been attached to at the hip since pre-pre-K. That was before Cali's only friends were the ladies who swiped her ID card in the dining hall, if you could call conversations that consisted of "Next." "Hi! Me. Sorry, I had my ID just a second ago. Really hot out there today huh? Ok, well, thanks. Have a nice day!" friendships. Before Cali was lying to and avoiding her oldest friends. Before Cali some how managed to get herself evicted from her dorm. Before someone started leaving her taunting voicemails on her ancient land line and creepy 80's doll trading cards stashed around her room. Before she ran into Tanner in the isolated underground tunnel of Wiltshire's historic bell tower during a messed up scavenger hunt on a night that would change everything. Outcast is the first book in the new Wiltshire University series; a New Adult/Young Adult slow burn reverse harem. 585 pages

Book Summary:

Soon after the start of the Great War, work hastily began on a series of hutted camps in Wiltshire for more than 100,000 men, and during the course of the war it became home to troops from Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well as Britain. With soldiers forming a third of the population the effect on the businesses, farms, and indeed the morals of the county was dramatic. Even after the Armistice peace did not return, with mutinies and rioting in the camps because of frustration at delays in demobilization. Wiltshire and the Great War describes this turbulent, fascinating period in depth. It describes pre-war training, showing how inappropriate it was to future warfare, outlines the pioneering of military aviation in the county and describes the role of railways in moving tens of thousands of troops. There are accounts of shirkers, spies, escaped prisoners of war, prostitutes, the 'landship' that clanked across the county and the wireless station that pinpointed the position of Zeppelins. Also described are advances in military technology, the camp-building scandals that led to an inquiry by a Royal Commission, press censorship, and the blighting of the Stonehenge landscape.

Book Summary:

Excavations at Collingbourne Ducis revealed almost the full extent of a late 5th–7th century cemetery first recorded in 1974, providing one of the largest samples of burial remains from Anglo-Saxon Wiltshire. The cemetery lies 200 m to the north-east of a broadly contemporaneous settlement on lower lying ground next to the River Bourne.
