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

  Merry Christmas

I wish everyone a blessed and merry Christmas.

I hope you'll find time in all that Christmas stress to curl up in your favourite spot for a bit, with a glass of wine, some gingerbread (or whatever you like), and a good book.

I'm waiting for the chronicle of Ailred of Rievaulx to arrive in the library (someone else reads it right now; how dare they, lol) because it's supposed to have a detailed account of the Battle of the Standard at Northallerton where King David fought against King Stephen's army - the topic of my next post.

Merry Christmas, dear Gabriele! Be patient with the chronicle you're waiting for and we promise to be patient while waiting for the afore-mentioned post :-)
Merry Christmas Gabriele - I was wondering what festive picture you'd post - it's always traditional - and you've kept up the standard yet again -it's beautiful!
Happy Christmas, Gabriele! Best wishes for the new year.
A belated Merry Christmas, Gabriele. May your New Year be blessed and filled the creativity you seek.
Thank you, Kasia, Anerje, Carla, and Barbara.

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. :-)
