Historic Greenwich and the Royal Park (Part 1)

By NEILMUIR1
June 19, 2010

Greenwich has more history than most people could research in their lifetime. From stone age tools found in Greenwich, the Romans in AD43, the Saxons settlement in the 10th century, to the Danes who in 1011 kidnapped Archbishop Alfege for a ransom, it is an amazing place. When the ransom was not paid, he was murdered and St. Alfege's Church stands in Greenwich to this day! Many of the things in Greenwich the tourists don't see, as they simply don't know about them.

This so much more than I ever new about Greenwich and the Royal Park.
Super photography, gives me the feeling I can still visit there, even though I'm 6000 miles away!
A trip down memory lane, thank you so much.
