Robert Armstrong's THE BIRTH OF EASTBOURNE is a time machine transporting the listener back to the town's creation as seen through the eyes of a travelling family just arrived to witness this event. Emerging out of the countryside, it is an area touched by Romans, Saxons and Medieval history. Then, in 1883, the town took on its important role as one of Britain's leading seaside resorts.
In the BIRTH OF EASTBOURNE, the listener relives the moment when the population of four hamlets swelled to 22,000, making Eastbourne a fully fledged town. But it is not just a political history, for Eastbourne is made of many facets - the great mansions in the Meads, more modest dwellings at the eastern end of the town, of fishermen, promenade artists and the people who were to serve the influx of visitors.
THE BIRTH OF EASTBOURNE is a living account of these momentous years, from 1883 to the start of the 20th century; years that have put Eastbourne not only nationally, but internationally on the map.

Robert Armstrong’s ‘The Pilgrim Soul’ is a small volume designed to awaken the reader to the vast and varied domain of spirituality. It is a guide to an unseen, but very real world of mystery that lies just outside our senses.
The author explores the migration of the Soul, its connection with God, how science and spirituality often interweave, the power of tantra in co-creation with the divine, the possibility of telepathic travel and our future path as part of a divine plan for humanity. The Pilgrim Soul is an overview of this vast domain and one that may fire the reader to a wider reading of the numerous books on this important and extensive subject. We are all Pilgrim Souls and our journey through life is to reawaken our realisation that we are not just mortal, but immortal beings, whose Soul purpose is revealed at every step we take towards our ultimate destiny.
