Jane Austen

The family of Jane Austen lived east of the New Forest, which Jane Austen visited. In the 'Albion Park' chapter of THE FOREST, Fanny Albion the heroine, like Jane Austen herself, is taken to the fashionable spa of Bath, where she is accused of theft and put on trial. The circumstances of this trial closely follow a similar scandal involving Jane Austen's aunt.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
October, derived from the Latin Octo, which means eight, was actually the eighth month of the year in the original Roman calendar of ten months. It wasn’t until the Julian calendar was introduced by Julius Caesar in the first century BC that January and February were added. The Julian calendar remained the predominant calendar in Europe through the sixteenth century, until it was amended to the Gregorian calendar we still use today.
