Patti has asked us to show History for this week’s challenge. I’ve just got to decide what to post…
Well, first up, I’ll show the balcony in Santiago de Cuba where Fidel Castro Ruz gave his Revolution speech in 1959 (it’s the one in the centre):
When we were in the Baltic, we saw the tin sarcophagus of a Pomeranian Duke ( to my shame I have forgotten where and what century):
When I visited Bletchley Park, there was a restored Enigma machine, and some interesting explanations of the complexity of the work involved in cracking the codes used by the German army in WW2
I have always been drawn to ruins from the past, initially thee castles of North Wales, and later the relics of the tin mines in Cornwall:
And now let’s go into the distant past- to a prehistoric stone circle (this one in Sweden)
So with these few examples, I hope I have demonstrated that history really is all around us, from recent history to ancient history….
