This is the end of our trip! We fly to Sydney tonight.
Yesterday we visited the Anderwycke Yew Tree at Runnymede. This is where the Magna Carta was signed by King John in 1215.
They think the tree is over 2500 years old and it is still alive! This means it has lived for longer than all the human history we have learned about in our trip – the Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Norman Conquest, medieval knights, Renaissance, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and the French Revolution.
We had to walk through the mud and past cows to get to the tree. When we got there, it had a huge wide trunk, which looked like it was hollow in the middle. The trunk and branches looked like strange creatures. We gave offerings of grass and leaves and sticks to the tree. We really liked the tree, except for Margot who wouldn’t touch it.
