This is a blog about the history of Ipswich, the town in which I live. Each post will concern itself with either a period of Ipswich’s history or with an area or theme throughout its history.
I’m Caleb Howgego, the author of this Blog. The aim of my writing here is to look at the history of a small and reasonably unexceptional town in England and find out just how rich and interesting it has the potential to be. The real theme of this blog is to show that, even where you least expect it to be, history can be surprising, engaging, full of interest and sometimes even comical. Where better to try to do this than in your own home town?
