To help keep my mind active during these strange times I've gone back to the Open University. I studied for a degree with them from 1980 to 1986, something I could do whilst still working and most of my courses were in History and History of Art. I later went back and did a creative writing course with them. At the moment they have lots of free courses with OpenLearn and I've enroled for 'Welsh History and its Sources.' At the moment I'm immersed in the 13th century and the Edwardian conquest of Wales. Details of Edward I building his castles around the coast and the well documented stories of the Welsh leaders like Llywelyn ap Grufford.
I'm lucky to have visited many of these beautiful castles so here are photos of five of them.
Have a good weekend everyone, stay safe and well.
