The idea for my degree project was born when my paternal grandfather said he had regained contact with a woman he used to walk to school with as a child. She said the only thing left of their home village was the stone foundations of the soldier’s cottage’s barn.

At the same time as the village was wasting away and being replaced by something else, grandfather increasingly began to return to it in his thoughts, and his memories of the period became clearer and clearer. He has always told me stories of when he was growing up, and the village has been present in my imagination since I was little. With the aid of my grandfather’s stories I have tried to recreate his childhood landscape and the people who populated it.
