Essex from Iron Age to Silicon Age
Twenty-six keen history seekers visited Essex between the 18th and 22nd September 2013. The sun may not have shone much, but the party was cheerful and digital cameras were working hard. Ambresbury Banks near Epping represented the Iron Age; the amazing story of the regeneration of the ruined Copped Hall and its gardens, and the use of geophysical surveys, represented the Silicon Age. Some of the views recorded on members' cameras are here on Flickr - Contributions by Anthea Jones, Angela Newcombe, Jinx and Peter Newley, Rebecca Starr and Frank Willy.
