This photo shows us walking to the care home - bringing a touch of the Medieval to modern Craigmillar. It was a truly amazing day for all those involved and I was proud to be a part of this inter-generational conversation.
Later that week I worked again with two schools in Govan - once at Govan Old Church and then in St. Constantine's Primary. I think my enthusiasm for the Vikings might have come across! Although I did have the funniest ever comment from a child when I showed her this photo of Viking tweezers
I am also very interested in the modern and the medieval Govan colliding...This picture shows the "Doomster Hill" as it is today:
I wonder how many local residents know anything about the fact that this might have effectively been a court/parliament/ceremonial site of the Kingdom of Strathclyde!
And I wonder how many of them walk across this stone set into the pavement which depicts an inscription from the amazing Govan Sarcophagus! Probably the oldest Grave monument in the Church - dating from about 850AD!
