Day 61 – Battle

The balance shifted as Harold fell
And England endured its Norman spell
Today an abbey fair still stands,
along with a legion of the Anglo-Saxon’s fans!

 

NOTE: Battle was adorable. Very informative, clearly structured, wonderful audioguide. If you ever visit the city, be sure to pay a visit to the local museum as well, where you can read a full print of the Bayeux Tapestry, see a Guy Fawkes effigy dating back to the 1700s and much more. Their “Did you know…?” booklet is hilarious.
