Websites from Nash Ford Publishing

Since 1996, David Nash Ford of Nash Ford Publishing has been providing history-based information free of charge to the public on our three popular websites. The main two also have areas specifically designed for children:

Early British Kingdoms Website

Early British Kingdoms

This website was originally based around the little known Celtic kingdoms of Britain which populated the island after the Romans left our shores. It has since expanded to cover both the reign of King Arthur (historical and literary) and the Anglo-Saxon new arrivals from the same period of history.

Early British Kingdoms, or EBK for short, currently houses over 2,250 pages of information, often gleaned from the most obscure and hard-to-find sources. Information that was first presented on the internet here, has been paraphrased across the web, but the original and most comprehensive information is on EBK. The site is illustrated with over 2,500 unique illustrations and photographs produced specifically for it. Browsing here is popular with Arthurian enthusiasts, students, re-enactors, gamers and anyone with an interest in Post-Roman and Anglo-Saxon Britain.

In recent years, particular emphasis has been placed on the 'EBK for Kids' section which is very useful for history homework as it relates directly to Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum concerning Invaders and Settlers. there are colouring and activity sheets available which are used by hundreds of schools across the country.

Royal Berkshire History Werbsite

Royal Berkshire History

This website covers the extensive, but often overlooked, history of the English county of Berkshire. As a history site, you can find information here about people and places from both modern Berkshire and the old pre-1974 county which included the Vale of the White Horse.

Royal Berkshire History, or RBH, for short, currently houses almost 3,000 pages of information. Events, places, buildings, people, folklore, art and literature: find out all about Berkshire without leaving your computer chair - or be inspired to visit. The site is illustrated with almost 5,400 unique illustrations and photographs produced specifically for it. Browsing here is popular with locals, family historians, tourists and anyone with an interest in the county.

In recent years, particular emphasis has been placed on both biographies of Berkshire people and the 'RBH for Kids' section. The latter is relevant to many areas of the National Curriculum. Find help with all your homework here and relate it directly to where you live.

May Family History Website

May Family History

More specialised than our other two sites, May Family History has been praised as an excellent example of the way to present your family history.

Trace the history of the May family, well-to-do gentlemen farmers from North Hampshire and Mid-Berkshire, in over 350 web pages. Many fascinating sources are presented, including family trees, parish registers, wills, monumental inscriptions, biographies, diaries and manuscript family histories from previous generations.
