Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I have just had a trip back in time to when my husband and I sailed down the Moselle from Germany to Luxembourg.

It was one of the most happy and scenic holidays we had ever spent! The banks of the river were festooned with vineyards and there were many accessible castles, which had once protected the villages along the river.

This is Bernkastel, a ruined castle with stupendous views of the Moselle.
The castle built by Heinrich von Finstingen around 1276, and these are the ruins which can still be visited today.

However, in June 2012 unusually massive remains of a Roman fortification (fort) were found during routine work on the outer fortification. Archaeologists date these remains, which were integrated into the medieval buildings, into the late 4th and early 5th centuries.

Please see my workshop which shows a view of the Moselle from a ruined archway.

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
