Re: Moving a caravan to a park in Andalucia

Anna...Good Morning, I've seen many 'statics' being shipped from UK and there are plenty of carriers available, maybe you could enter your details on one of the numerous courier sites who will bid for the job ? I'm not sure that it is really worth shipping your own 'van', unless of course it is very...

It is a very 'grey' area and in my view time for some updating of the laws, in all countries. Any death or injury caused to an assa...

Re: recessing a sundial into stone

Good Morning Olive, An interesting project and good to see that you are reverting to an ancient lifestyle instead of relying on the digital world.! Do you really need to recess the sundial ? During my antique- house-clearing and recovering architectural salvage days most sundials I came across were ...

Re: Tartessians

Lavanda, The Tartessos / Tartessian culture has been mentioned to me in the past, and it is reputed to have links with the lost city of Atlantis, regarded by some as mythological , but the site is possibly under the Donana National Park. As for artefacts there are many coins related to the Tartessia...
