Default Lincolnshire UK

Hi,

Lincolnshire is a large county in the Eastern side of England. The English counties are much larger than those in the US (I lived in Callaway County, MO 2005-July 2006). An old name was Shire (Yorkshire, Wiltshire, Nottinghamshire etc.) and with the county town of Lincoln therefore Lincolnshire.

Lincoln Cathedral is where parts of the Da Vinci Code movie were filmed.

See:

or the university where I am a lecturer in history:
