We later built this website as a vehicle to share our reconstruction work, and to advertise our living history services, but the old blogspot page has continued trundling along in the background, with the occasional article posted and then shared through our social media pages, particularly when what we had to say felt topical. However, its become clear that the maintenance of the old blog left much to be desired - its format increasingly dated, and the web tools increasingly unwieldy. Having trialled the tools here with our "Recent Reconstructions" blog this seems the obvious choice to relocate our wider discussions of history and archaeology topics.
This blog will therefore serve as the new repository for our articles, going forward, with the old blog still available at thethegns.blogspot.com but increasingly not actively maintained. Some of our favourite content from the old blog may be re-edited and migrated over here too. We hope this new format will be both more readable and more visually engaging, as well as better integrated with our wider work.
