Ghosts of Roman Past
If you were a historical romance or paranormal writer, it would be difficult not to find inspiration in this city, and indeed the countryside. At each corner of a dimly lit historic building, down cobblestoned lanes, along old riverbanks and through the winding country lane...there is a tale waiting to unfold. It just needs you, the storyteller to weave your magic. Last weekend it rained. Yes, I know! Surprisingly, England does get wet on occasion. Alas, my Sunday BBQ plans were cancelled at the last minute, and I looked elsewhere for entertainment. I found it! The Roman Villa at Lullingstone in Kent. If ghosts of Roman past did not wander by me here, then where else?

|Decorated coffin, the remains of a young man found within.|
|The old kitchen, perhaps?|
|The Hunter or the hunted?|
Has the storyteller in you awakened?
A/N: I love that our rained out BBQ led me to these ruins. Thank you Rain Gods!
