Historical Sketches of Dulcote, Somerset…
Our understanding of the past cannot be as simple as it would seem from our history books. Historians create differing interpretations of the past – just as we do now of our own present. And no two historians will be able to reflect the same reality.
The “sketches” on this site attempt only to capture a series of snapshot-images of Dulcote’s past. They have been garnered from facts recorded by our ancestors and stitched together by the active imagination of one modern writer. From the numerous threads of such records and stories, we can see patterns in this community’s historical character. Stepping back further and looking at the permutations of the weave overall, a time-worn tapestry of the hamlet of Dulcote emerges.
