Yet rather than ‘just’ being a study of the whole gamut of Anglo-Jewish presence (and absence) through the local, or history, as one of Alan Bennett’s characters puts it in The History Boys, being ‘just one f … ing thing after another’,88 the chronology is challenged throughout by the complicating factor of memory. Anglo-Jewry since 1066 is thus as much about ‘then’ (when the events explored in this study happened) as ‘now’ (when they were remembered and re-remembered). Combining history with the analysis of memory work, and then exploring the relationship between them, concepts of time and chronology will be problematised but certainly not abandoned in this study.
