We returned Saturday and it's taken until now to go through my pictures and provide some order and assessment. While the bulk of my time there was spent at the conference we were able to spend a day touring the Isle of White and one day on the golf course at Winchester South.
It was different travelling to Europe and finding the locals speaking English, albeit in some archaic form.
One of the first places we visited was the Battlefield at Hastings. It's one of those places where history changed. To emphasize that point, James Burk wrote in Connections something along the lines If the Normans didn't have stirrups we'd all be speaking Saxon.
