Durotriges - this site
Starting from an initial genealogy research project based around a West Dorset parish and agricultural family this has widened to cover the area of Dorset and some surrounding counties. Durotriges has been associated with such an area coming as it does from a period of history where no exact boundary exists. Fragments of information exists in a wide range of sources and it has always been a challenge to find, access and interpret it.
The aim is to provide a framework to hold this information in a structure that can take general and precise information. Linking such geographic, temporal and key data through web technology.
If available we will provide information on, or links to, data on other accessible sites.
The site is arranged under the following headings:
Political, civil, ecclesiastical, military, law and order and demography (census and BDM) information
The physical things around as
Natural - down to nature - Flora, Geology.
Built - man made features, Roads, Houses.
