That's not entirely true. I stay indoors to watch your splendid travel videos.

I did.Once again, it's those combinations of the castle and the surroundings that make your videos so special. And the great music----I didn't know they had four-on-the-floor stuff in those days.

Vox Vulgaris is a modern day 'middle ages' composer, who brings it all back to life with modern technology I guess---I think it's great!  

However, thanks for the compliments on this new video! Raglan was on my 'to do' list for some time.... Very Happy

March already?! Well a few days in it seems. With that said, and I don't mess around, this months trip has been planned for the MR travels---stay tuned (it's going to be a game changer!).

I was away when you posted the Leicester Cathedral trip so I missed it. It's now bookmarked for watching tomorrow.

Another superb vid, Rich. The Faure "In Paradisum" was a great choice.

It's quite unnerving seeing Richard III's tomb, an oblong block with a simple cross carved in it. And it
must have been unnerving when they dug the great man up just after your visit to Middleham Castle!

I thought that as well, that his tomb seemed a bit plain, even out of place. Too modern for where it`s located.

Since his remains were found in 2013, the unseemly row between Leicester and York over where to bury him dragged on for over 2 years (longer than he actually reigned as king 500+ years ago).

When Leicester was chosen for his final resting place, opinions were indeed divided. I agree his tomb does look modern, but once you see it in person it ain't that bad. Maybe, and you could well argue the case, it could of been more creative and historic. Things were rushed at the time to get him buried and it actually took them 28 hours to get his coffin/tomb into Leicester Cathedral---it was a ball ache apparently!

Thanks as always, John! The Faure "In Paradisum" was actually played at his burial in 2015 at Leicester Cathedral.

They were both surreal moments to tell the truth for myself. Firstly when his remains were found the day after I visited his childhood home, Middleham Castle, in 2013 and last month when I indeed visited his final resting place in Leicester Cathedral.

Spooky indeed, but never unnerving for myself, just good and happiness. Smile

Nice site, Ms Mod, thanks for the link. Great pages on Sicily----it's always enjoyable to revisit it in pictures.

That is so cool! Great that you braved the early morning hours and the cold for this! Do you plan trips for the rituals for the other three seasons? Make it a series 'Four Seasons at Stonehenge' or something to that effect.

Stonehenge Spring Equinox was my friends idea who was with me on the trip. I thought it was brilliant and glad he suggested it! There were suggestions of filming the Summer Solstice in June---so we might go back! Although thousands attend that event.

As I film a trip every month for MR, they normally range from castles to churches, etc. You raise a good idea though! I could well just do that. The Druids had to fight for public to touch the stones for the March Equinox and June Solstice for years. It only past some years back, and rightly so!

Wow, guys. I admire your fortitude in getting out there at that ungodly hour! Still, you touched it, which I believe is only possible
at solstices and equinoxes. And some great shots there, particularly at sunrise. A morning to remember, I should imagine.

Stonehenge is very cool. That said, I remember there being underground souvenir shops when I last visited it, probably in the 1970s. I don't know if they're still there in some form? But all in all, an interesting part of the world in terms of prehistoric sites.

I myself prefer Avebury---and it's got a pub.
