Lullingstone Roman Villa was built in the Darent valley in Kent, England. First as a house in 100 AD; then added to as time went on over 300 years. A magnificent piece of the U.K.s amazing & stunning history.
Neil thank you so much for this fascinating article. I find it amazing to find out about how they heated and cooled the places they lived. I can almost see in my mind what it must have looked like in the day.
I wonder what their meals consisted of, and how they were prepared?
Dear Lynn, they were almost self sufficient in food due to their estate. However they did get supplies from Rome, which was brought up the river Darrent! Things like olive oil, wine etc. They also planted vines for there own wine making. It is also known that they brought many herbs into Britain. Things like; Bay trees, sage, Basil, thyme etc.
They ate fish, lamb and beef, with game like venison. from there farm estate, and the river.
Dearest Vic, Belgium makes the best chocolate in the world. It is also very expensive as I found out when I took the wife there! I hate anything too sweet and especially chocolate; disgusting stuff, full of white, bleached sugar. Give me Marmite, English sausages with mustard and a pint of foaming ale any day!
Dear Lynn, it is brewers yeast and quite strong. Not sweet at all and very good for you! It is of course salty and tastes a bit like Bovril which is beef extract. Bovril is delicious as a hot drink with Worcestershire sauce. Lea & Perrins of course.
Gorgeous on a cold day!
Semps are coming on a bit. Unfortunately a month and a half in a box, did not do them the world of good!
Tons of Hugs.
All is going well here in Chicago It's cool here just before it freezes. I am not looking forward to it at all. I am meeting all sorts of new people and I love that. All are so friendly and make me feel at home. Tomorrow is paper work day for my daughter has been taking me up shopping and for lunch all the time. We are having a ball together . I am so fortunate to have such a wonderful daughter that takes care of me the way she does. She is here every day doing something. Yesterday we hung pictures. What ever we do we have fun.
Well enough of that. Hope all is well with you and yours.
Take care lots of Love and Hugs,
