Shaping the Past
Theme, Time and Place in Local History — Essays in Honour of David Dymond
Editor: Evelyn Lord, Nicholas R. Amor
About the book
Dr David Dymond is one of Britain’s most highly respected local historians. He is a Vice President of the British Association for Local History and of the Suffolk Institute of Archaeology and History, President of the Suffolk Records Society, and an honorary fellow of the University of East Anglia.
The author of several valued books about the practice of local history, notably Researching and Writing History, his contribution to the study of local history generally, and in his adopted county of Suffolk in particular, has been immensely influential.
The essays in this Festschrift are offered as a token of esteem and affection by colleagues, friends and students of David. They consist of new research on aspects of local history from the medieval period to the twentieth century, with a particular focus on Eastern England.
Taken together, they illustrate David’s philosophy of local history (that it should be ‘wide‐ranging, inclusive, integrating and interdisciplinary’).
