Strange find in the woods

On one of thier journeys of discovery into the Bodstonian backcountry, James Forrester and Adahy come across, what for James is a strange object. Adahy explains to James that it is a  Totempole and, he not knowing to which tribe it belonged, could have several reasons for being placed where it is.
Among them, it could be a welcome sign  showing the border of a tribes territory or a housepost, the carvings,  a sort of heraldry,   telling the story of the family or tribe who owned it.
James wonders why it has been abandoned and Adahy explains that the tribe/Family may have moved, taking the Pole would have been too much effort.
James  makes a sketch of the Totempole and the friends continue thier journey of discovery.

The New Windmill

Close to the Village of Boddingham a windmill has been built. The reason being that Boddingham is too far from a wide enough waterway to make it viable to take the corn to the Millers Ship mill, the  "Dusty" and wheat production has increased in the last year all across Bodstonia, meaning more than enough work for Both "Dusty" and the new Windmill.

Here we see some of the women folk from Boddingham  as they start a days work at the windmill.
Bags of corn are being taken up the stairs into the mill house and Soon the Sheets will be spread on the sails and flour production will begin.
