Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...

A Day with the Romans!

 

                                       

                                                                                                                     

Fortunate to live within a 40 minute drive of York – Eboracum for four centuries under the Romans – I spend a lot of time there and love the way that the city celebrates its long heritage. This year’s Roman festival was wonderful and so I thought I’d share with you some of the photographs I took during the day. They include examples from the living history camp, parade, ladies’ fashion show highlighting the difference between social classes, military manoeuvres and kids’ army. Despite windy conditions and the occasional light shower, a good time was definitely had by all.
