Nottingham Sightseeing Photos

Rachael came to visit from London this week, and we did some sightseeing in Nottingham. It was great fun to see the Castle and eat at The Old Trip to Jerusalem—things I’d been wanting to do for a long time but haven’t gotten around to yet—as well as to walk around looking like tourists, taking pictures of everything we came across.

Early Medieval Derbyshire

One of the primary reasons I decided to come to England for my PhD was so that I could live in the country where the people I study lived. As a student of Anglo-Saxon language and literature, I’m thrilled anytime I can find a remnant of that society still in this country, as are my fellow students and our supervising faculty members. Last summer (around July 2015), some of them got together to plan a trip around Derbyshire to look at Anglo-Saxon artifacts still extant. Other than manuscripts (which you don’t normally find by the side of the road), these mainly consist of stone carvings and are often preserved in or near churches. This gallery, then, is a collection of photos I took during that trip—though not all of them are of specifically Anglo-Saxon items.
