Books

Books:

 DSC_0006Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations. Books, the oldest and the best, stand naturally and rightfully on the shelves of every cottage. They have no cause of their own to plead, but while they enlighten and sustain the reader his common sense will not refuse them. Their authors are a natural and irresistible aristocracy in every society, and, more than kings or emperors, exert an influence on mankind.”

Henry David Thoreau, Walden.

    Unrelated, but right up your alley. BBC documentary on how to build a castle, using ONLY peroid technologies. Same people as the “Victorian, Edwardian, Wartime Farm” shows. Eye opening. Four episodes on youtube.
