1: Dec 29th, 1170 AD. Canterbury Cathedral.2: 1215 AD. Runnymede. Magna Carta. 3: 1349-50 AD. Witnessing at first hand a flaggalents procession. I think its nigh impossible to fully understand the magnitude of The Great Pestilence, but reading accounts of the desperate acts taking place, like instances of the infected burying themselves alive in holy ground due to the lack of priests gives you a small insight into the chaos & insanity morphed into grim acts of piety that gripped Britain. 4: 55 AD. An open beach somewhere in Dover in anticipation of the wily foxes first invasion. 5: Druid ritual. Pre Roman occupation. (Anywhere on the mainland)6: Jan 13th-June 10th, 1333 AD. Dunbar Castle sets the scene for Black Agnes to make her mark on history.7: 1966 AD. Wembley. 8: 60-61 AD. Just up the road from where I live & somewhere near Viroconium. By all accounts a glorious day for the Romans & superior military discipline. That said, they (Roman rank & file) must of been bricking it.
