Pagan Eye: Assaulting the Castle
I took this photo of a family queueing up to enter Pevensey Castle when I was enjoying a day out in Sussex earlier this year.
Pevensey Castle was built by the Normans shortly after the conquest in 1066. Although I love visiting old ruins, I always feel just a little uncomfortable in Norman Castles because they are, after all, a symbol of a time when Anglo-Saxons were defeated by the invading French.
But that of course is all a very long time ago, and when I visited Pevensey I learnt that the castle had last played a role in defending Britain in WWII. Nowadays it is a tourist attraction in spectacular countryside - as I hope my photo shows.
My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
