On Sundays, the British Library closes, so I had a chance for a last field trip. And I decided to go see where the Battle of Hastings happened. Apparently, not really at Hastings. Instead, it happened outside of Hastings by some miles, and where it happened, William the Conqueror ordered an Abbey to be built. And then a town grew up. And then the Abbey was dissolved and what was left became a country house. And then that became a school, and voila, a tourist attraction.
That pretty much ends my excursions in the UK. Soon, I'm headed back to the great Northwoods.
