The care and dedication that went into the making of ''Chasing Waterfalls'' stem from Mike''s love of photography and his ability as an artist to not only create stunning images, but to leave those involved feeling empowered and as beautiful as he sees them through his lens.

Carlisle

release date: Jul 20, 2017
Carlisle
Carlisle charts the city''s emergence as an urban centre under the Romans and traces its vicissitudes over subsequent centuries until the high Middle Ages. Arguably, the most important theme that differentiates its development from many other towns is its position as a ''border'' city. The characteristics of the landscape surrounding Carlisle gave it special significance as a front-line element in the defence of the Roman province of Britannia and later at the frontier of two emerging kingdoms, England and Scotland. In both cases, it occupied the only overland route in the west between these two kingdoms, emphasising the importance of understanding its landscape setting. This volume sheds light on the processes of urbanization under the Romans beginning with a fort, developing into a major nodal hub, and ending as the capital city of the local tribe, the Carvetii. The story continues with the collapse of Roman rule and the city’s re-emergence first as a monastic centre, then as a proto-town in the period of Anglo-Scandinavian settlement. Finally, the Norman Conquest confirmed Carlisle’s importance with the establishment of a castle, a diocese, and an Augustinian Priory, as well as the granting of specific rights to the citizens. Carlisle uses a combination of archaeological discoveries and historical data to explore the history and legacy of this fascinating city.

The Romano-British Peasant

release date: Apr 30, 2013
The Romano-British Peasant
This important and significant volume examines, for the first time, the ordinary people of Roman Britain. This overlooked group u0096 the farmers, shopkeepers, labourers and others u0096 fed the country, made the clothes, mined the ores, built the villas and towns and got their hands dirty in the fields and at the potteru0092s wheel. The book aims to rebalance our view of Roman Britain from its current preoccupation with u0096 archaeologically visible u0096 elite social classes and the institutions of power, towards a recognition that the ordinary person mattered. It looks at how people earned a living, family size and structure, social behaviour, customs and taboos and the impact of the presence of non-locals and foreigners, using archaeology, texts and ethnography. It also explores how the natural forces which underlay the use of agricultural land and regional variation in agricultural practice impacted upon the size, health and nutrition of the population. The Romano-British Peasant leads the way towards a greater understanding of ordinary men and women and their role in the history and landscape of Roman Britain. This title has been nominated for the 2014 Current Archaeology Best Book Award.

Salute to the Hudswells

release date: Oct 11, 2014
Salute to the Hudswells
Salute to the Hudswells tells the story of the 41 Hudswell Clarke locomotives used on the 2ft gauge sugar cane railways of the Colonial Sugar Refining Co Ltd in Queensland and Fiji between 1911 and 1976. 34 were of the classic 0-6-0 tender type of which examples are preserved in working order in Australia, England and the USA. Also included are the prototype 0-6-0T type, the 4-4-0 passenger locomotive of Fiji''s ''Free Train'', the Fijian 0-4-0ST wharf shunter (also preserved), and some pioneering 0-6-0 internal-combustion machines. The book gives an outline history of the Colonial Sugar Refining Company and its sugar mills in Australia and Fiji which largely relied on narrow gauge railways for the transport of cane from the field to the mill and in some cases raw sugar from the mill to the port.A focus is the last ten years of operation of the Hudswells at the Victoria and Macknade mills in north Queensland where author Ian Stocks worked in rail and transport operations, with 2 million tonnes of cane hauled in a six month period each crushing season. Ian arranged for the preservation of the remaining locomotives when steam finally came to an end after the 1976 crushing season. Lastly, details are given of the Hudswells that survive in preservation.
