The influence of Earls Colne on my other writings. How my various books came out of work on Earls Cone – all my English books, ‘The Savage Wars of Peace’ and others, are based on the Earls Colne experience. So many things about an English village which seem odd when you go away to another civilization. The depth of history of Earls Colne, the wealth of English houses and material affluence, food etc. An attack on revisionism.
