The Orpheus Mosaic was found in 1825 and dates back to the 4th century AD. Orpheus was a character from a Greek myth who could play the lyre so beautifully that wild beasts were instantly tamed. The mosiac shows Orpheus charming the animals with his music.We then got lost... The End. *BONUS PICTURE*

Shelley and I went away for the weekend with Shelley's parents and sister to the Cotswolds. We stayed in Park Cottage, Stow On The Wold. Highly recommended. We accidentally ordered a chinese from the following establishment. As the photograph shows, this isn't in Stow On The Wold... (opps!). We also walked past a Llama farm as illustrated beautifully by the following photograph. We visited the Corinium Museum in Cirencester which mostly features Roman artifacts such as the following mosiac.
