Day 16

The day started with a nice breakfast (I feel like I have these great feasts of several plates of great food). And then I had class where we broke down the myths of the medieval ages (things like king Arthur – who we actually know little about – and st. Patrick – who isn’t Irish, but Romano-British), did a close reading of a piece by Bede and a poem The Ruin, discussed how Roman Britain became a failed state, which provided an opportunity for the Anglos and Saxons to come and take over. Then after class I made sure to go to the cathedral and listen to the organ in the cathedral while doing homework (evensong is at 5:15, and it’s amazing). But after dinner I did more reading before calling it a night since I was exhausted from the London trip weekend.
