In 1985, I thought I had rediscovered a mostly undocumented and largely forgotten deserted medieval village in Hertfordshire ~ right down to an intriguing Domesday Book entry, anomalies on Ordnance Survey maps, revealing aerial photographs taken in the hot dry summer of 1976, and visits to the site itself ~ and I cobbled together a paper on how I'd determined it was there and then how I'd gone on to locate the possible actual site of the village.
I then suddenly came to realize ~ during a tutorial with my landscape archaeology lecturer ~ that it was - in fact - the well known and extensively examined site of a village abandoned in the C14th, and that my failure to be aware of this was rooted in my disorganized hard drinking student life and me not reading one of the books on the list the lecturer had given me.

edit: I just realized that letting your sub expire doesn't mean you will go away

@lemondrop, I for one give a sweet damn when my good friends here disappear in the dead of night as did @DanTriola and @Mathurine,
respectively "728" and "1,556 Days" ago and as long as I'm still able to access the internet always will. -Bob
I thought that I had an original thought once. It turned out to be derivative. Odd, that, thought I at the time, as I have little facility with calculus. Rene Descartes would have been proud of me. I thought, or so I thought.
