Some Kings, Having a Bad Hair Day
Your Honour, I have no idea what happened to the princes in the Tower, I swear.
But I do know what will happen to the idiot who did my hair this morning. Mwuahaha.
Richard III standing trial, Richard III Museum, York
The scene is accompanied by an audiotape that plays a virtual trial with the arguments for and against Richard's involvement in the death of the princes safekept / imprisoned in the Tower in London.
York has close connections to Richard III and there's a little museum
dedicated to him. A fun place hidden in one of the towers of the old town fortifications.
And for our Edward fans:Edward I-III, York Minster
There are statues of the kings of England from Henry I to Richard III.
I can't help, but Edward III's hair looks like a perm gone wild. And that Gimli beard ... Ed II looks sullen. Did Piers smile at another man? :)
I took the photo without a flash. It's slightly blurred but the relief is a lot more plastic than in a pic of the same motive I took with flash and which looks cold and flat. An experience I've made more than once.
This is post no. 300. *opens champagne bottle* :)
