Driving along the Millstone Valley Scenic Byway is a trip back into the history of central New Jersey. The villages of East Millstone, Millstone, Griggstown, Rocky Hill and Kingston offer the visitor a glimpse into the life of the valley as it was and still is. This natural north-south corridor in central New Jersey offers a glimpse into the past where rich layers of history from the earliest Dutch settlement through skirmishes of the Revolutionary War to the canal era live on. The valley s streets and roads of today follow the trails once used by the Lenape Indians who peacefully ceded their claims to the land as the Dutch and English settlers arrived. The new settlers were eager to clear this fertile land for their farms and villages. These roads also follow the same routes used by General George Washington as he led his weary, freezing soldiers to Morristown after the crossing of the Delaware and the victory at the Battle of Princeton during the American Revolution. The Millstone Valley Scenic Byway, which is a central feature of the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area, makes history come alive through a charming glimpse of the rural past surviving in the heart of America s most densely populated state."

New Jersey's institutional research accolades are renowned--medical inventions at Johnson & Johnson, the genius of Edison Labs and fourteen Nobel Prizes to Bell Labs scientists. But beyond those behemoths of innovation lie many more breakthroughs and firsts. In 1869, Rutgers and Princeton played the first college football game. Famed inventor Abram Spanel developed the Apollo space suit at his home, Drumthwacket, now the official residence of governors. The American Can Company and Krueger Brewing Company teamed up to create the first beer can. Author Linda J. Barth reveals these and many more stories of the state's diverse tradition of original ideas and trailblazing personas.

Cheddleton is located on the road from Leek to Cheadle, settled in the rolling landscape of North Staffordshire. For a village, there is far more to Cheddleton than meets the eye. It boasts a number of grand gentlemen's residences, mostly still occupied as private homes, a beautiful cruck-framed farmhouse and two museums; one dedicated to the railway, and the other to the village's watermills and industrial past. It has the River Churnet, the Caldon, a canal, three pubs, three shops and a post office. For more than a century, it was also the home of the county asylum, housing 600-800 psychiatric patients. Then there are the people: Cheddleton boasts a multi medal winning Olympian, and connections with George Gilbert-Scott, William Morris and Vera Brittain. Compare this with other villages or even small towns, and you will feel that Cheddleton really is a richly interesting place with a friendly and welcoming community.

The Thames Valley offers one of the richest resources of archaeological data in the country. This volume providesd a detailed overview of the late Iron Age, Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods in the Upper and Middle Thames Valley, from the source of the river in Gloucestershire to the start of the tidal zone at Teddington Lock. Following a thematic structure, it offers an up to date account of the changing environment of the valley, evolving settlement patterns, the identity, beliefs and culture of the valley's inhabitants, their agriculture and industry, and the archaeology of power and politics in the region. Much of the evidence has been recovered during extensive gravel quarrying.
