This work began as an exercise in analysis of the course of the Lézard river in Harfleur

The line of that river long disappeared is still visible in the parcels of land that make up the plan cadastral. This is shown in the image on the left. The text on the right combines a description of the actual state of each parcel of land today, with a quotation from Shakespeare's Henry V which takes place outside Harfleur.
