Have you ever sat and wondered why a medieval packhorse bridge was built? If you have then you have my sympathies if not I suggest you don’t. I have been doing just that and I have some ideas but none of them seem to make that much sense. It could be said that most of the past 10 years have been spent trying to answer this question about another medieval packhorse bridge but I think I have an answer to that question – unfortunately the answer for this bridge doesn’t apply to the first bridge which I should find rewarding, and I do, but I just want to know why the first bridge was built as well.
This brings me nicely to Ms Germanotta. I have been working on this portrait for a few hours now and the original is far from completed. However I decided to work on the image so far and came up with this which I think is actually quite good. So like my medieval bridge dilemma I have an answer but I am not sure it is the right one.
