We all do don't we but sometimes it just becomes more noticeable. We went out this am to try out a walk for our group and it took us past a motte and bailey castle site. It was very well preserved and just looked so ancient. It was apparently constructed for the Norman lord but was probably built on the site of an ancient holy place. We had already walked down the Oxford canal constructed in the C18th and then returned home to our lovely town with its medieval castle. Sometimes it's hard to fathom what's around us. All those lives.
