|Climbing the Southern Barrow|
About a monh ago, I won a double-sided woollen cloak fairly cheaply on a Facebook-auction, and I decided to combine the pick-up with a trip to 'Denmark's Birth-Certificates', the runestones in Jelling.
My kids had not been to Jelling before, and it was a good opportunity to give them some cultural and historical fodder.
Anna had her knee-cap slip (heredital problem) some days before, and thus was using crotches.

Sorry to hear about the family knee-cap problem :-( .ReplyDelete
My experience is that trying to indoctrinate my children with cultural and historical "fodder" hasn't always worked very well!
My children and I are very much 'living' history, also going to re-enactment events/fairs in full historical costumes, so visiting sites with historical significance actually means something to them. It also helps to combine with gaming, films, and books with corresponding contents ;o)Delete
