Background to Ingeld's Daughter

There were several incidents and patterns from British history that sparked the story in Ingeld's Daughter, either because I wanted to explore what could have happened if an event had gone another way, or because I wanted to try to illustrate and dramatise some social or economic shift that happened over a long period. Some of these are listed below, and I'll add more discussion from time to time. If you have any comments or questions, contact me and tell me what you think.

The world of Ingeld's Daughter

Ingeld's Daughter is set in an invented world, because I know of no incident in British history that would let me use all the story threads I wanted to include (see above) without making changes to recorded history that would have been unacceptable to me. The world should be apparent as you read the story, but there is some additional background here if you want to know more. I'll expand on it as I have time to write more, especially in response to your questions and comments. Think of this as akin to the Appendices in Lord of the Rings, if I may make so bold a claim. You don't need to know any of this, but it's here if you're interested.
