Photo-a-Day - Aug 2012 - Day 18: Historic
Ever since Mrs. Adams, my 6th grade teacher, taught us about the Peloponnesian War by drawing the battle positions on the blackboard in pink and green chalk and letting us chose which side we were on, without knowing the outcome, I have loved history.  She made it real for us right down to thinking of the participants as living people.

When I had the opportunity to visit London, going to The Tower was top of my list as it, to me, encapsulated English history from the Roman occupation through to the present.  I can't express my excitement at seeing, and touching but don't tell, a wall built during that occupation in the 2nd or 3rd century.  The water dish is for the rooks of the Tower.
