england memories


Today is ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand.

ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and today serves as a national day of remembrance for our soldiers. You can read more about it here.

Thank you to all the Anzacs; the brave men and woman who have sacrificed so much for our countries, and still continue to do so. 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Lest We Forget.


(Album: Heartwork, 1993)

Place memory is mutual or interactive, in that the land and its features were never merely static or passive surfaces upon which human physical and conceptual activity was inscribed, but rather were always evolving, accumulating their own histories, bearing the changing traces of innumerable nonhuman as well as human actions and events.
—  John Sutton, from “Place and Memory: History, Cognition, Phenomenology,” to be published in The Geography of Embodiment in Early Modern England, ed. Garrett Sullivan and Mary Floyd-Wilson (Oxford University Press, forthcoming)

Place memory was encoded and sedimented or consolidated, for individuals and their groups, through iterative and repetitive activity. Working and walking the land brought deep embodied familiarity not only with particular places but also with the events and stories associated with them at a fine-grained level that may not be easy for many of us to grasp. Through constantly acting in and on the land, early modern people were ‘reading, monitoring and remembering change in the local world down to its most precise details.’
—  Andy Wood, quoted by John Sutton in “Place and Memory: History, Cognition, Phenomenology,” The Geography of Embodiment in Early Modern England, ed. Garrett Sullivan and Mary Floyd-Wilson (Oxford University Press, forthcoming)
