So why Thurstaston.com?


Well back in the day I thought it would be a great idea to nab the domain name for where I lived. In hindsight it would have been better to grab one where I didn’t have to spell it out every time I gave someone my email address.

For years I didn’t really do anything with it except use it for email. However, this is a waste of a domain name so I have decided to use it to give a bit of information about where I live and also to use it to showcase some of my hobbies and interests. The two are intertwined via my interest in the Dark Ages and the Vikings in particular.

It is and will always be a “work in progress” as I add more bits to it and discover more about the history and what is here. Its funny how when you live somewhere you don’t really know much about the area and that is certainly the case here. So I will be adding stuff and updating pages etc. as time goes on. Some stuff will be wrong, some may be informative. If you know something to be inaccurate I would be grateful if you could let me know. Saves me finding out 2 years down the line. There will also be typos.. don’t bother telling me about those; I will find them eventually 🙂
