Don't worry LesMac, I have been trying to get to grips with Bronze Age and Iron Age settlement in and around Coventry. I think it is when we have a history of our own that we tend to look to see how much difference there is between us and our ancestors - in the basics not a lot.

Roslyn Chapel is up here. I have often been asked if I am in the Knights Templar both in Inverness and Malta (having attended Lodge Meetings in both locations) but I am not involved to that extent. The KT hold meetings in the Lodges all the time.

I think the Roslyn Chapel pillars debate will always have questions to answer! Knights Templar, Freemasons and Calvinism while off topic of Coventry would make an interesting thread all by itself.

You're right, such a thread would be interesting. Indeed, the Coventry links of each of those "organisations", for want of a better word, would make such a topic quite relevant if you wish to begin one. Incidentally, although I know almost nothing about the Knights Templar myself, I seem to recall David McGrory chatting about them to someone in the guildhall a while ago, and I think he said something about skulls being used as a symbol of mortality and as a way of discrediting the knights once they'd gone out of favour, possibly by the Catholic church, but I can't be sure.

Please excuse my misspelt Roslyn. In my mind I was thinking of Roseline Chapel in France that has links with Roslyn. I have been to Roslyn, very strange place. One arch is decorated with corn cobs and as the chapel was built before America was discovered, how could the builders know about corn cobs? Corn wasn't known here till comparatively recently. Well worth a visit, pity it's so far from here.

I've also been to Roslyn and never thought about the corncobs. Out of interest and assuming they still do, all the Coventry Lodges meet up regularly in the Chapel below the ruins of Guy's Cliffe House on the edge of Warwick. Now that is a spooky place!

Strange tales, in Coventry, Men employed as works fireman, then told to ignore part of the works if there was a fire. Guy steals a new car of firms car park, then takes it back to same firm for repairs. Drunken guy dives of new bridge being built, into canal, and lands in the wooden pylon foundations and drowns. Tanks built to climb any type of ground, topples down the clod banks. Man asks wife to sell his brand new car,wife sells it for a pittance. for spite. Man about to break into property, try's to out run marathon trained Policeman.
