Back to my roots

In Shropshire today with my mum developing our project archives to art - creating a video interpretation of our family history. My mum has traced the family back to the 16th century where they lived in Shropshire up until the early 20th century, working as farm labourers, stone-masons and weavers. The landscape is beautiful but remote and their stories full of sadness and hardship.
