One of the stunning 12th century frescos at the beautiful church we visited on Monday. Just to whet your appetite . . .
Ill be back again later, with postings about the 2 churches (leaving the best until last of course), but just when I should be cracking on with painting the office walls, now I have got some more cream emulsion as the white really DOESN'T work in here, I am on a wonderful voyage of discovery reading about Edmund Crouchback, Roger Mortimer, Blanche Mortimer, Piers Gaveston and the Marcher Lords et al.
I wish they'd taught us more of THIS sort of history at school - I really wasn't that enamored of the Industrial Revolution (though I would be much more so these days, especially the Social History that our teacher merely paid lip service to). I can honestly say that only when I left school, did I actually start learning as I read about the things which interested me . . .
