Partly inspired by the ‘Head to Head’ section in History Today magazine, OLHA’s journal editor Vanessa Moir would like to start a new feature in which three or four historians from different parts of Oxfordshire write pieces of around 300 words about how a particular issue affected their area.

To start, she would like to find people from contrasting parts of the county, urban and rural, to write about what The Parish in Wartime: Bishop Gore’s Visitations of Oxfordshire, 1914 and 1918published by the Oxfordshire Record Society in 2019, says about their area during the First World War.

If you would like to volunteer for this interesting task, please contact Vanessa.
