In Huntingdon on 25 Feb, not so far from York, La Scala Studios launched its competition – Deadline 15 May. I talked about Like False Money and where the horses came from. Linda Acaster gave us a fascinating talk on the history behind her Torc of Moonlight including an amazing insight into the practice of throwing silver coins into wells and just how long we, as a species, have been at it. It made me realise the Romans were here only yesterday and far older footprints are embedded in the ground we walk on.
Young Nick efficiently dispensed drinks and snacks and a good time was had by all. Well, I hope so. Linda gave a tips and tricks talk for potential entrants that she later put on her blog.
