It was another work day, but we made a stop at Orford Castle – near the SE coast of England. It isn’t the nicest…or largest…castle I’ve ever seen, but it had its own chapel as well as a small jail. I wonder why those rooms are no longer included in homes???
I walked to the top and was rewarded with a great view.
We also stopped at the site of Sutton Hoo, but the buildings were closed so there wasn’t anything to see.
Sutton Hoo, according to Wikipedia; is site of two Anglo-Saxon cemeteries of the 5th century and early 6th century, one of which contained an undisturbed ship burial including a wealth of artifacts of outstanding art-historical and archaeological significance.
England has really, really old stuff. I am always reminded when I am here how young my own country really is.
