A few years ago I took my family to the 17th Century living museum and village Little Woodham, near Gosport in Hampshire. I met there James Hodgeson, or master John from the village as he prefers to be known.
In the April of 1642 the King of England, Charles Stuart and his Parliament stood on the eve of Civil War. The momentous events of that year unfold as the autumn approaches. Using extensively researched local events and people the villagers link their families and their lives to national and international events.
