It has been a labour of love to Miss Gibbons to gather together a mass of valuable information, and to shape it skilfully into a series of pictures of Wantage in the past and in the present.
Our late revered Bishop and great historian, Bishop Stubbs, has said, a very great many persons can find in the following up of local and personal history a connection with the greater streams of social and political history that is full of direct interest.
Wantage has kept in close touch with those greater streams since the days when Roman soldiers spoke Latin in her streets, when later on Danes and Saxons, and in more recent times the troops of the King and of Cromwell fought over the now peaceful Downs, amid whose folds the little Town lies hidden.
