Developments leading up to May 2021
The most important new development on the website was the provision of a new A-Z index. We hoped this new index would allow website visitors to more easily find pages on topics of interest to them, and even to suggest new topics (if they do not find the information they are looking for). Many thanks to David Lewis and Joyce Ainslie for the painstaking work in compiling the index and cross-checking all the links.
A new page was added to describe the recently restored great south window of Canterbury Cathedral. This is the largest window in the cathedral containing many stained glass images (of the ancestors of Christ) that are hundreds of years older than the original 600-year old gothic window. While gaining access to the cathedral was limited, it was suggested to visit the new page to view some of these ancestors?
We also made available a list of nearly 100 talks delivered to CHAS members from 2004 to 2021.
