Foxburg on the Web

  • Tony Fox

    I am a History and ICT teacher, teaching in Secondary Schools in the North East of England. I am Chairman of the Durham branch of the Historical Association. The idea of this site is to place some of my small ideas 'out there', as I am getting old and forgetful it is good to have them where I can find them. My larger projects can be found in the other Foxburg Sites section.
