Common Ground and local distinctiveness
Returning to England, I’m delighted to see Common Ground have been at it again: this time a magnificent new tome, “England In Particular: a celebration of the commonplace, the local, the vernacular and the distinctive”, Sue Clifford, Angela King and others for Common Ground; pub. Hodder & Stoughton 2006; ISBN 0 340 82616 9; price Â£30.
Sue Clifford and Angela King pretty much are Common Ground: the grand masters of local distinctiveness, localised knowledge and the nature of ‘place’. Much to learn there for anyone involved in narrative knowledge and the ‘groundedness’ of social networks; also for geomancers too, of course.
