While we were away last week we got to visit Old Sarum, the site of a settlement that predated Salisbury. All the time we were there I could here a deep booming sound. I thought I might have been demolition or building work going on down the hill but, as I reached the high point of the old castle and my ears popped, I identified it as the sound of artillery. Although I knew the army's testing ground of Salisbury Plain was close by, it still freaks me out slightly to here gun fire.
This picture is of Freya in the old castle, just before she declared me king and began her invasion of the outer buildings. It was a great day.
