Children of the Empire - The Victorian Haggards

Rider Haggard was the best known, through his books, of ten Norfolk siblings who came to maturity as the British Empire was reaching its zenith at the conclusion of the 19th century. Because Rider was so well known, the others of the family have often been overlooked - yet his brothers were as much involved with the Empire as was he. Their opportuniteis and careers were dependent on the expansion and maintenance of the colonial world. Theirs is a good story, worth the telling and one which reflects both the vitality and confidence of the British Empired - and its intrinsic weakness.

First published in 1996 by Victor Gollancz, we're delighted to be able to bring Children of the Empire - The Victorian Haggards back into print. Click the basket below to order your copy online, or enquire at your local bookshop.

In this their second title for Poppyland Publishing, Pam Inder and Marion Aldis have expanded on the one chapter devoted to Catherine Nichols in their previous title,'Nine Norfolk Women', as their research took them deeper into her story.

Lilias Rider Haggard: Countrywoman

Mention the name Rider Haggard to the 21st century reader and it is the novelist, Sir Henry Rider Haggard, author of King Solomon's Mines and She, who comes to mind. His wild adventures and stirring romances held their popularity from the late 19th right through to the later decades of the 20th century.

But the East Anglian might also swiftly call to mind his daughter, Lilias, who was an accomplished authoress in her own right, a columnist for the Eastern Daily Press and a range of national publications. Hers is a very different story. While she had the privilege of sharing in some of her father's exotic travels Lilias also shared her own generation's tragic experience of the First World War. As a VAD nurse she watched as the harrowing conflict changed their world. When she returned to her Norfolk home she came back not only with a new depth and compassion but also with a determined affirmation of rural life that soon found its expression in her on countryside matters in many articles and books.

The Golden Age - The rural crafts of John Golden and the Golden family of Northrepps

The Golden Age - The rural crafts of John Golden and the Golden family of Northrepps is new title from Poppyland Publishing. In this age when we enjoy discovering our ancestors through the many records now available on line, we can often find that the house in which we live can unlock a fascinating past as well. When author Graham Ferguson moved to the village of Northrepps, he became intrigued by the modernised building in which he lived - which contained a number of features illustrating its past as a centre of rural crafts and as a foundry. So began a journey of exploration through memories of villagers, the records kept at the Norfolk Record Office and historical photographs and illustrations of the village.

The result of his research is the book 'The Golden Age', about the Hutson and Golden families who operated the foundries in the village. It is a splendid example of how to tackle local research and how to put it into context which will be of interest to many local historians, those interested in industrial archaeology and to family researchers.

Nine Norfolk Women - Succeeding in a 19th century man's world

Before reading Nine Norfolk Women - Succeeding in a 19th century man's world you'll probably ever have heard of most of the women featured in it - and that's quite intentional. The common perception of the woman's role in the 19th century may have been slaving away below stairs or genteely sipping tea above stairs. But through diligent research in a wide range of archives, authors Pamela Inder and Marion Aldis have continued their research into the lives of women in a time gone by - when women were not expected to be successful in the world of enterprise. A family of money-lending ladies, female lighthouse keepers, enterprising businss women, artists and dressmakers, writer and farmers - and two Norfok women whose lives took them far from their home county.

This book is for all those with an interest in social and local history, and is also an excellent example of how research that starts from census records and local directories can expand to give a fuller picture of our ancestor's lives.

Boudica - Her Life, Times and Legacy

The most readable and up to date story of what we really know of Celtic heroine Boudica. After the death of her husband Prasutagus she would lead a revolt against the invaders that shook the Roman Empire to its core. Colchester, London and St Albans all fell to the Icenian warriors before a final confrontation in the English Midlands restored Roman power.

Myth, invention and mystery surround her life.

It will stand as a popular introduction to a lady of great power and influence, much of it beyond her own time, and it looks with enthusiasm towards what archaeology might hope to discover in the future.

The Diary of a poor Suffolk woodman

The Diary of a poor Suffolk woodman is a special publication - because it features a poor man's diary. Few of William Scarfe's class in the early 1800s could write well enough to produce more than fifteen years of a journal of his life and village. Now, over 150 years later, we are able to share his world and enjoy the social history of the 1830s through his words.

Pip and Joy Wright and Léonie Robinson have transcribed the words that William Scarfe wrote in the margins of a prayer book he had been given by the local rector. To his words they have added pictures, contemporary accounts and careful explanations to provide a context. The book is a model for any local historian, and whether or not you ever visit the village of Thorpe Morieux in Suffolk, you will find in the pages the life of an East Anglian countryman of the early 19th century.

The Castles of Suffolk

The Castles of Suffolk takes us back to medieval times when the county had wealth, good employment prospects, high quality agricultural land, a sizeable population - and in he mind of the ruling class a need to control any trouble! It had been subject to invasion from Vikings and even the Norman rulers fell out amongst themselves, so defence and of course status were much on the minds of the ruling Barons.

Author Peter Tryon has delved deep into historic records, reviewed many existing published works and visited all the sites in the county reputed to be castles. From the glories of Framlingham and Orford through to the mysteries of the lost castle sites at Ipswich and Southwold, he has pulled together all the evidence in a book which will satisfy both readers at home and the explorers who want to visit the sites themselves.

Medieval Flushwork of East Anglia and its Symbolism

Medieval Flushwork of East Anglia is a book which will appeal to anyone with an interest in local history, church architecture and decoration - and will give inspiration to artists of the present day. That's just how textile artist Margaret Talbot became engrossed in the subject and set out researching the symbols on medieval churches that she was using for her work.

Many of the little known churches of Suffolk and Norfolk have wonderful flintstone images that decorate their walls, tower butresses and parapets. The study of this symbolism gives a facinating glimpse into life in the 15th century, including trades, guilds, merchant's marks, pilgrimages, heraldry and the cult of the saints.
