Happy Birthday to the #Roman Empress Valeria Messalina, a wife of Claudius. She was born on 25th January AD17 or 20 & was the daughter of Domitia Lepida the Younger & Marcus Valerius Messalla Barbatus. She was descended from Mark Antony & related to the future Emperor, Nero.
The „Princess of Profen“ was laid to rest with one of the richest assemblages of grave goods known from the Germania Magna. Dated to around 40-65 CE, many of the objects hint at her origin in the region around the Middle Danube. Photo © LDA Sachsen-Anhalt, F. Hertel. #archaeology

We've had a flock of 20 Goldfinch feeding on the seeds of the saltmarsh plants @ryeharbour_NR on the ground where the tide deposits a line of seed. Reed Buntings feed in the same area. When disturbed the Goldfinch often fly up into the Elder tree above the bench
Getting ready for our geological #BurnsNight feast! We have the haggis (rock) and the potato (stone), who has the neeps?
