Head to Head

By Philip_H
Thanks for all the recent C&C's on my p/f, and a special thank you to Annette for making 'The Holy Ale' up to R/C.

This selected detail is from a large metal sculpture inside the 13th century Mont Orgueil (Mount Pride) castle in Jersey. The castle is located overlooking the harbour of Gorey. It is also called Gorey castle by English-speakers, and lé Vièr Châté (the Old castle) by Jèrriais-speakers.

The sculpture (The Tree of Succession) shows the medieval royal lineage of England and France.

Best wishes,
Philip

How wonderful! There could be some of my ancestors in this...Wink
I grew up with Jèriais, my grandfather spoke it. Forgotten most of it now but I remember that I had no difficulty with Medieval Norman French at university! I still have the family's old Jèriais/French dictionary somewhere.
