Chester Castle and Auckland Castle


Here are two items of news I picked up in recent weeks:

Chester Castle’s Agricola tower has been undergoing restoration and, when this crisis allows the tourists out again, you will be able to go right to the top of the tower and enjoy the fabulous view. In the mean time, here is a short article with a video of the view.

Archaeologists in Durham County, northern England have discovered the remains of a monumental medieval chapel destroyed during the English Civil War. It was feared Bishop Bek’s 14th century chapel would never be located, but archaeologists discovered the religious site was hidden on the grounds of Auckland Castle all along.


Ann Marie Thomas is the author of four medieval history books, a surprisingly cheerful poetry collection about her 2010 stroke, and the science fiction series Flight of the Kestrel. Book one, Intruders, and book two Alien Secrets, are out now. Follow her at http://eepurl.com/bbOsyz
