And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Everyone likes a Viking/Anglo Saxon hoard, but it's also fun to listen to Dr. Goldberg's Scottish accent.
The Galloway Hoard. Fun fact: whoever buried it, put the least valuable part on top. Below that, a layer of gravel, then the two thirds of much more valuable loot. A decoy!
Wow, thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
I was there two months ago and saw the display. I spent about 5 hours at the National Museum and then ate fish and chips just up the street afterward.ReplyDelete
