I'll be Away For Some Days
On that journey to the Rhine I mentioned before. The weather looks very British right now, except the rain isn't horizontal. Let's see if the sun decides to peep out a bit to give me some nice photos.
I'll be hunting some Roman remains, old cathedrals and castles and whatever other fun I can find on the way.
Here's the Roman fetter that was found in Hedemünden in 2008
. It has been cleaned and was displayed in an exhibition last year. The neck goes in the large loop, the wrists in the smaller ones, then the whole thing is fixed with the bar. It looks decidedly uncomfortable and the iron was probably going to chafe after some time.
