Things I've picked up along the way...

Pretty medieval manuscript of the day is St Andrew with his cross. Today is his feast day. I always smile on the 30th of November because it was a day off when I was at university in the little Scottish town of the same name. We used to dance in the town square.
The manuscript is from the British Library and dates from the very beginning of the sixteenth century. It is a fascinating manuscript which ended up in the hands of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII before being acquired by the library as part of the royal library of King George III.

    It’s still a day off in St Andrews, though the dancing in the square has turned into the ‘Nae4Wimps’ street ceilidh...
