In June, The Hertfordshire Mercury reported that the Great Bed of Ware is to make a return to Ware after a 140 year absence. The majestic larger than life bed was created in 1590 and has been stored at the Victoria and Albert museum in London. It’s being loaned to Ware museum.
We searched on Wikipedia and discovered the Great Bed was built by a Hertfordshire carpenter named Jonas Fosbrooke! His namesake is one of the key modern day characters in The Earth Emperor’s Eye. He’d need a time machine to be able to create the bed himself. It’s symbolic all the same.
