What is the Burghal Hidage?

As a historical reference the Burghal Hidage was a feudal defense system established by the Saxons in the early tenth century against Viking invaders.  For the purposes of this site it is more of a symbol for what is today and what may be to come.  If you follow over time you will come to understand that it refers to a number of things, past, present and future.

Ultimately my plan is that this will help to serve as part of a platform for a novel underway.  Until that time the site will feature essays on politics and current events, short stories, a small sampling of poetry and the occasional Daily Prompt. Some of my material may also be found on writerbeat.com, where I am as here…
