802 – Roman Hampshire

The rotunda in the picture isn’t Roman, but you could almost think it is. The more I read about the history of the county. The more significant the influence of Rome becomes apparent.

I’d quite like to pay a visit to Silchester. It appears that there is a lot of Roman history there. On our trips to Pagham we visited the Fishborne Roman Palace The Bignor Villa it was amazing to see the quality of the mosaics and the technology of the underfloor heating. A most fascinating insight in to the lifestyle of the very wealthy.

Up near Butser hill there is a series of 5 barrows called the Devils Humps. I am curious to go and see them. I don’t think I am obsessed with artefacts from Neolithic or in this case Bronze ages, I feel just a little bit drawn to visit them for some reason.

I go back to previous posts where I’ve written about my visit to Knowlton. Haunted Britain describes this as one of the most atmospheric places in Dorset.

When I visited Knowlton, I probably spent about half an hour there, but whilst I knew that it was old I didn’t really feel anything. What should I feel? How do I find that out, and why do I have this sense of curiosity about these things? I think these are questions I would like to explore.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
