David, you kick started my memory of history lessons long gone, it was called history back then and not folk law. The interest stayed with me all my life having lived through historical or should that be hysterical times.
Swithunus Escopus Bishop of Winchester reputed to have gone to Rome with king Arthur? no Euro-train then.
Was Sainted when his body was buried in Winchester after it was rebuilt, with a bit of luck he will change the weather today and we are having sunshine on Teesside, the fourth day in a row. The weather forecaster told us early in the week we would get one day of sun and more floods, wrong again, it did rain after tea last night but my sheets will be going on the line soon as the washer is done with them.
People say history matters not, then it comes back to belt us one and we never learn, if we did we would not be up to our necks in Afghanistan. Live and learn we do not.
