Today we visited the Roman Villa at Bignor. Unusually, as you are walking around the exhibition, they let you walk on the actual mosaic that was part of the villa. To think that you are actually walking on the same floor as Romans stepped in AD350 is just a bit strange. The villla is interesting. It is nowhere near as grand the Roman Villa at Fishbourne, I think it is a little bit more intimate.
It took us about an hour to go around the site, and so we were left with the decision of where to go next. We had a bit of a debate as to whether to visit the Amberley Museum, where I am quite keen to go again after our last visit before the lockdowns or the alternate a return to Arundel.
We decided that I would visit Amberley by train the next time Elayne had a day out, in the meantime we would pay a return visit to Arundel.
The reference to Antiques in the title is on respect of one of the shops has a section related to old camera equipment. In 1977 or 79 I bought a Canon AE-1. I sold it after not too long. Apparently, they are heavily sought after now. I find it mildly distressing to find that something I once owned from brand new is considered antique.
On a final note for today, Kim’s Bookshop in Arundel is a delight to behold. Three floors absolutely crammed with 2nd hand books. Well worth a visit.
