Competition Results

16th February 2023

Here are the results of our latest newsletter competition…

Last time, we had three copies of Nick Acheson’s The Meaning of Geese: A Thousand Miles in Search of Home to give away, courtesy of Chelsea Green. We asked:

The barnacle goose is so-called due to which mythology surrounding it?

And the answer is: the belief that it hatched from a barnacle. The winners are Victoria Flute, Sally Cross and Sarah Finch. Your books should be with you soon!

Thanks for all the entries. To be in with the chance of winning our next prize — one of three copies of the paperback edition of Richard King’s Brittle with Relics: A History of Wales, 1962-1997, newly published by Faber — make sure you’re signed up to our mailing list. The sign-up box can be found on the right hand side of this page.
