A quick build this one for CCCX and my British History series;
Ring-a-ring o' roses,
A pocket full of posies,
We all fall down
AD 1348, England, Tigelfáh. The Black Death has gripped all of Europe striking a blow to the both sides in the war on the main land.
Tigelfáh is affected just as much as all other towns in England. The children go out of the town and play and unknown to them create the now popular nursery rhyme ‘Ring-a-ring o' roses’*. Meanwhile another victim is buried out in the fields as the church graveyard no longer has enough consecrated ground for burials**.
*It is possible that the ‘Ring-a-ring o' roses’ has its roots back in the period of the Black Death, although it is more likely to be associated to the Great Plague which happened in England in 1665.
**This is a twist of facts to suit this MOC!
