Historical Sites

As time allows, I like to take a look around historical sites, in Britain and abroad, my trusty digital camera in hand. The results of my visits can be seen below. They are not intended to be detailed surveys, just brief impressions. Many sites are not normally on the tourist trail and may not have much known about them; for example the numerous enigmatic Iron Age hill-forts. In keeping with the aims of this web-site, I have tried to show links with parallel historic events and the coins that illustrate them.
