My Illlustrated Travel Journal with Essays about Roman and Mediaeval History and some Geology

  Merry Christmas

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas, or Fröhliche Weihnachten.

No candles as illustration this time; I found something a bit different on the Orbit Publisher website.


Not exactly a Roman lorica segmentata dear Santa's wearing, but let's not be picky about the pointy stuff in that bag. My characters will need some, and the picture made me smile.
 
Comments:
Merry Christmas, Gabrielle. Love the picture. Just what I want Santa to bring me. (and a new trebuchet)
 
Gabrielle, again Merry Christmas!
 
Merry Christmas Gabrielle!
 
Constance, what do you need a trebuchet for in Wyoming? There's nothing to knock down there save some crooked fences. :-)

Thank you, Kasia and Anerje.
 
Happy Christmas, Gabriele!

Great picture :-)
 
Gabriele - I always need a trebuchet, just in case. There's cows to tip over you know. (And rickety fences)
 
Gabriele

Hope you had a merry Christmas.

I do need a broad sword.

The Lost Fort is a travel journal and history blog based on my travels in Germany, the UK, Scandinavia, and other places. It includes essays on Roman and Mediaeval history, as well as some geology, illustrated with photos of old castles and churches, Roman remains, and beautiful landscapes.

I'm a blogger from Germany with a MA in Literature and History which doesn't pay my bills, so I use it to research blogposts instead. I'm interested in everything Roman and Mediaeval, avid reader and sometimes writer, opera enthusiast, traveller with a liking for foreign languages and odd rocks, photographer, and tea aficionado. And an old-fashioned blogger who hasn't yet gotten an Instagram account. :-)
