    Posing with some locals... Lance Corporal Roger on the left, a Stormtrooper, Private First Class Johnny on the right- a Stormtrooper, and a Crazy patriotic clown, later gunned down by Stormtroopers for squeezing himself into the frame:

    At the British library, where me and Gaelle had awesome time enjoying priceless manuscripts such as a 10th century text of Beowulf, gorgeous medieval Qur'ans, some of the earliest copies of the new testament, and other awesome texts of the other major religions

    Old Sarum, originally a Neolithic site (around 3000 BCE) and later also used by the Romans and then the Anglo-Saxons:

    Haha. yeah me and Gaelle were a bit surprised that they also sold New Age/Neo Pagan material along side proper archaeological literature in the shops at Avebury. I guess these sites attract all kinds.
