Anglo-Saxon Warriors – My Sunday Photo – 16/07/17
Hello everyone. I have to confess I had no idea earlier what picture I would be sharing with you today. I hadn’t been anywhere interesting this week, or done anything unusual.
That all changed this afternoon when Mr A and myself popped into Chepstow for a spot of lunch. While wandering up the high street when we came upon a group of Anglo-Saxon warriors.
We had unwittingly stumbled upon the 950th celebration of Chepstow town.
Chepstow castle and a priory were built by the Normans in 1067. Less than a year after the battle of Hastings. To solidify the Normans control of this area of Wales.
What we witnessed was a parade through the town of Anglo-Saxon and Norman soldiers.
Today I’m adding a video clip with the pictures as the Anglo-Saxons charging the Norman soldiers was quite impressive.
Have you had any celebrations near you celebrating events or buildings that were starting in the year that followed the Battle of Hastings?
