Stonehenge may get all of the attention, but there are standing stones throughout the UK that are worth a visit. One set I had the chance to see with @TheTravellingHistoryCompany is Harold's Stones in Trellech.
Check out the MissElaineous Blog later this week to learn more about the fascinating history of this area of Wales, or pop by today to catch up on Part 1 (link in my profile).
One of the first places I visited in Trellech was the medieval church of St. Nicholas. Much of it dates to around 1300, and it even has its original medieval preaching cross in the churchyard. Check out the MissElaineous Blog later this week to learn even more, or sign up to the mailing list to have the blog delivered directly to your inbox (and get a free eBook!).

It may not look like much today, but this mound is the remains of a motte-and-bailey castle in the village of Trellech. Stay tuned for next week's blog post to learn more about it and the other ancient monuments in this small Welsh village (which, once upon a time, wasn't so small!). Part 1 is available now on the MissElaineous Blog (link in my profile)
