Hidden in the centre of London, the ruins of St-Dunstan-in-the-East, a church built in the eleventh century and severely damaged during The Blitz. The ruins were repurposed into this Victorian gothic dreamscape of a public garden, crawling with Virginia creepers and creepily atmospheric.

In pictures: Six of Britain's oldest trees

The Ankerwycke yew There may be yew trees in Britain that are older but the 31-ft wide yew (Taxus baccata) found in the ruined priory of Ankerwycke in Berkshire has witnessed at least 2,000 years of history and myth-making. It is said to have been the spot where King John signed the Magna Carta in 1215 and is rumoured to be where Henry VIII conducted his first liaisons with Anne Boleyn. Many yews are found close to abbeys or in church yards.

The London Stone in Cannon Street is the oldest piece of London. It was moved in the 1700s from the south side of the street to the north side and built into the wall of the former Church of Saint Swithun before the church was bombed in WW2, yet the stone was left unharmed. The name “London Stone” was first recorded in historical documents around 1100. - Click on pin for full history.

Behold! The Jewish Jesus

Get the facts about the invention of Christianity. (Jesus never used the Old Testament, he moved people away from his God, hence new religion started...and then manipulated) Even worse, Jesus was a confirmed Essene, so already knew about the prophecy of the forthcoming Messiah. Also, for the times, he was classified as a heretic and a terrorist (3 disciples were guerilla fighters against the Romans also)

interestingly enough, I just had a conversation about churches and the people in them with a friend this weekend...if it comes up again, I'm using this.
