Family Tree Magazine: August 2020

Wayne Shepheard emailed to let me know about his latest article published in the UK Family Tree magazine.

In 7-pages, with lots of illustrations, he "investigates the significance of castles in the world of our Early Medieval ancestors, exploring their rise and demise, and providing hints to help you trace your family connections."

If you associate Wayne and climate you won't be surprised that he makes a connection to the Little Ice Age and The centuries-long Medieval Warm Period!

Looking forward to this issue! It hasn't arrived at the library where I work yet and I'm wondering if it's been lost in the post. Might have to buy the digital issue!!
