Throwing Money at a Problem

For the past few days I’ve been working at the Staffordshire problem.  I’ve followed up numerous leads but in the end the best solution I found was to throw money at the problem.   So 99 pence plus postage was wantonly  dispatched to an Amazon Seller and I became the proud owner of an ex Kent Library book called The Staffordshire Landscape.  It has helped me so much.

As a result of this book plus all the other leads I’ve been able to start to draw a map of  Staffordshire dating back to before the Romans (This is only a very small part of the map)

The work is painstakingly slow but ultimately rewarding.  However, it doesn’t help that it wasn’t until the early part of last year that I kept my records on a database, linked to the maps,  before then it was vague references which no doubt meant something at the time but didn’t 2 years later! I eventually found the book I was referencing in my slowly increasing library of local history books!
