Where in the World is the Western Flag… ??
Okay, so it only traveled around northern England and southern Scotland, but still it was on quite a journey for a while there! Here are my favorite pictures featuring our wonderful Western students and the trusty (full of holes) Western flag!
On Hadrian’s Wall looking up at the steep climb ahead.
In a window of 13th century Thirlwall Castle with Robin, near the village of Greenhead in England.
In a Bronze Age stone circle at Castle Rigg in the Lake District. This dates to 3000 BC!
Up the balcony of the abandoned abbey at Jedburgh in Scotland. Do you see that rain???
Fighting a Roman gladiatorial battle in full garb at Chesters Fort on the Tyne River!
Helping “Western Girl” launch herself in flight from the highest elevation point on Hadrian’s Wall.
Underneath an amazing geological formation in Haltwhistle Burn, only 5 minutes from our cottages!
On the upper parapet of the reconstructed Roman fort gate at Arbeia Fort in South Shields on the east coast of Northumberland England.
At the top of a perilous section of Hadrian’s Wall near Cawfield Crags.
In an Iron Age hillfort above the site at Vindolanda walking to the Roman quarries.
In our wonderful trench at Vindolanda on the last day of Field School for 2013.
