Somewhere along the way I (Mel) failed to mention that one of our Rouen walking tours included the Joan of Arc story.
The cold/wet visits to the site of her conviction and the site of her death were sobering and a bit heavy so early on the morning we visited her memorials
You will recall from your Europe history studies that Joan was instrumental in the death of many British military officers ... claimed to receive messages from God ... captured in France ... turned over to England ... tried & convicted of 'heresy' (not crimes of treason) ... ... ...
burned at the stake at age 19 !!!!
