The Hundreds

Kate Liston, Tess Denman-Cleaver

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The Hundreds is a series of stories in which a collective body of people carry out practical tasks. They find an island, plough its fields, grind grain, make bread, build an assembly site, weave wool, design costumes, contract industrial diseases, tell stories and dream. Written about bodies being and working together at a time when this was illegal, The Hundreds is a fantasy informed by research of real-world island societies: the Isle of Man’s Tynwald Hill; the UK’s physically crumbling Westminster buildings; the evacuation in 1973 of the Icelandic Island of Haimaey; and craft traditions of Scottish Western islands.
