Summary: "At the Mouth of the River Wey" is the history of Weymouth, Dorset, UK, from Neolithic times to the future ... through Celtic, Roman, Viking, and Norman occupation to modern Britain and its global connections. What matters in history is who lived, who disturbed the normal flow of life, who changed things, who contributed to human progress, or not, and, consequently, who is worth remembering as an example of good or bad. This book tells the tales of those pe
ople and their times immersed in the history of a town in south Dorset. The author lived in that town for close on a decade but has written the book after forty years of absence across the Atlantic. Looking back he sees the town from a different vantage point than others might see it. The volume is intended to be readable enough that, once opened, is very difficult to put down.
