Fragments of Two Centuries

Alfred Kingston F.R.Hist.S.

The book describes rural life in England from approximately 1750 to 1890, using church records, local newspaper archives and personal reminiscences from the Royston area. It details the changes in all aspects of rural life in that period : social, agricultural, transportation, etc. Though local in its overall theme, the book will be of a wider interest to all those interested in the social history of the period.

The Heath and its Wild Flowers

Alfred Kingston F.R.Hist.S

The author brings together a brief record of the principal points of interest which the Heath presents to the visitor. It begins with a short history of the Heath and is followed notes on its typical wild flowers. These are written for the general reader and so the book follows the natural arrangement of the flowers on the Heath, rather than the order which is found in botanical books.
