I’m already starting to get very interested in English history. I sort of expected this, but one thing that is surprising is how easy it is to come across pieces of it as we travel about. Winchester is very significant to William the Conqueror and William II. Raglan Castle was significant in the civil war between the royalists of Charles I and the parliamentarians of Oliver Cromwell .
All the kings, queens, wars and the such seem to run together in my brain. I’m a tactile learner so I have started a notebook where I can write down the things I come across. I’m a nerd.
