THE HISTORY OF THE 1st Batt Wiltshire volunteers

whilst doing some research today I came across this book on Archive.org....its all about the formation of the 1st battalion Wiltshire volunteers....from 1861-1865 and published in 1888..its only 134 pages...but what makes it interesting and may appeal to those in the Bristol/Bath and South West area..when reading it you will notice..it gives Drill/practice locations..now they seem quite an event at the time.and involved rather large numbers and local crowds would gather to spectate..they tended to held..on large open ground just outside a city or town....for example Durdham down.Bristol or Lansdown racecourse (Bath) and area nearby.....so with such large numbers present military and onlookers..one can assume items from both may have been dropped.whilst event is taking place...now I know theres the issue of permissions and im not suggesting you would get it...but its something a little outside the general detecting box and sites im not aware of being pursued..so may those who can grant it ...simply haven't been asked and if you make a solid case of being one interested and researching this period of local military history..who knows they maybe swayed to granting permission..it maybe something those local may be intrested in persuing...and those interested in South West battlions will certainly find the book of interest.so I thought id post for those who do. ::g

for a little book it goes into real good detail.so well worth a browse,

British Cannonball Sizes ect

Excellent website for id'ing historical ordnance from my bookmark collection.it covers cannonballs,flintlocks,cannon design,wheellock and other topics that may help to iding which cannon or gun your find came from and may even help to finding out which opposing side used it..even down which cannon group..for example if they had two different types of field artillery in one of the armies.then you might be able to pinpoint to whom fired it or dropped even more precisely.with a little extra research...theres lots you could learn from these things than you may first think lol that's why I like seeing them pop up.

I felt this rather excellent thesis by Henry F Cleare would be a nice addition to the library for those interested in the Roman period of our history..the theisis focus is iron ore mining during the roman period and is well researched and detailed..and excellent pdf to add to your collection if you are interested in the early industrial.
just click link to download.

just as a nice addition to above.heres a pdf of st cuthberts roman mining settlement..it quite likely to support mining there would be infrastructure maybe in the shape of settlement nearby most such sites and like those we see from the gold mining boom days in the states these to would have eventually collapsed and simply vanished not long after the vains ran dry of what they was extracting.so something to bear in mind if one has really old mining location nearby a permission that's been granted.. as it could possibly have been exploited during the roman period.which quite a few in my area of the south west was.

MYSTERY CULTS IN ROMAN BRITAIN By John G. Drummond.

a study that seeks to investigate the evidence of mystery-cults found in Roman Britain in an attempt to understand their place within the religious realm of the province. Attention will be given to the cults of Isis and the Egyptian gods, of Cybele and Attis, Bacchus, and Mithras. Considered will be questions of how these cults were organized, who engaged in them, and how the evidence from Britain effects the greater understanding of the cults within the Empire.

readable on-line via link worth a bookmark if interested in roman religious practises ect
