A great big thank you to all involved in this huge project. In the end I think there were 17 contributors.

Please share and let us see this project grow.

I was originally inspired to create this by taking part in a Jorvik Viking Festival project at Strensall Explore and The Robert Wilkinson Primary Academy.

At present all artists generously donated their work, for which I am extremely grateful, and I hope we will create revenue by a printed version and further projects in the future.

All artists are available for commissions, and can be contact through me.

When I sit here, I have sat here before. I am hobbit-like and living. In my sense of belonging, I know: I know this place.


Families are thin, thin on the ground, of the mountain. Long line of families in the mountains, dug in, right into its rock and earth and grass. There are long deep roots which hold us in place. Some say if you chop too many the whole mountainside will slide with us into the brakk below.

Yes here I belong, and feel I always have and if it is so and I have visited before it would have been in ancestral time a momentous occasion.

I still feel, when I stand there now, the haunting presence of one unallowed to love, ghostly appearance in the corner of story. Even with a broken heart one can still…
