One of my favorite things about this semester in Canterbury is the course "Sites and Sights." We attend a lecture about a historical place or issue every Wednesday and then on Friday, we go to visit that place. I can’t imagine a better way to learn about British history.
These are pictures of Dover Castle. This castle overlooks the English Channel where invading armies from France crossed multiple times over the centuries. The "white cliffs of Dover" were mentioned by Englishmen returning home in stories I read. I loved visiting this place because of the beautiful view from both in and above the castle. One aspect I found particularly interesting was the slits where arrows were shot through at intruders. The trench around the Castle was also for defense, and it reminded me of fairy tales with moats and dragons. It’s easy to remember fairy tales here in England.
