Old Sarem

Old Sarem was a big hill with castle ruins on them. It was a great place for a castle, because you could see for miles all alound you and your enimies were always exposed.

Different castle rooms.
The dungeon- The word Dungeon comes from the Latin word Donjon witch meant ‘Lords room’ the lords room was the safest room in the castle. Soon they put their prisoners in their and it turned in to the jail. They decided to change the name from ‘Lords room’, Donjon to ‘Jail’ Dungeon.
The bathroom- They did not have indoor pluming, so the king would sit on a hole and poo and pee would go I to a deep pit. When the king left leaving the toilet unused a peasant would be lowered in to the deep pit and clean it out.


Theese stones were being but up around the same time the pyrimids of Egypt were being built. They were carried all they way from Ireland and the biggest one was 7 tons. The stones are called ‘Bluestone’ the reason they had to have those stones in because when you touch them they are warm. They were built in an intresting form. A circle, so that in July the sun shone through the 7th colom and so on and so forth.


Avebury was a cool henge. It was a huge circle of stones. We didn’t even walk around the whole thing! This time you were aloud to touch the stones. They felt warm, they were supposed to.

Magna Carta

The magna carta was a law, written in Latin, saying that the king could not just do whatever he wants. What happened is the Barrones the made the Magna Carta met the king half way and showed the king their laws. The king approved. When the Barrons backed down the kind turned his back and went to the bishop to say ‘everything should be back in my power, their should be no Magna Carta!’ When the Barrons found out they were obviously outraged. That’s how the Civil War started.

Stonehenge and the pyramids. Evidence we are descendents of the Alien race : )

Or possibly that cranes were invented long before we gave them credit for.

Glad you are taking your rest days...
