I am stretching Mama Kat's Prompt-Something New You Tried.
I am currently participating in the A-Z challenge without a theme, which is the something new. I am posting and commenting every day which is something, I have never tried before and it is time consuming. Yesterday I spent all day on the computer. It has been a challenge to come up with a post for every letter of the alphabet this April. I am glad I have a few done already, so that I can still be doing some posts for my other favorite memes. I hope I can keep all this going, until the end of April.
My good bloggy friend, Comtesse Olympe de la Tour D'Auvergne, over at Amphorae keeps me apprised of many things, historical. Apparently the Brits have been digging up their history in carparks.

The next week the Comtess, was sharing the CNN report of another excavation, of what is believed to be 14th century Black Plague victims. This time it was while historians and builders were excavating for a new London rail link, so, still transportation related. "Historical records talk of a "no man's land" established in 1348 in the Farringdon area, where some 50,000 plague victims were buried, according to a contemporary historian. Up to now the area has never been found." This was a find of about 13 victims, with many questions still to be answered.
I love History!
