Intense, operatic.

    I just love history! Great post!

    Will you help us Save our History?

    Visitors always find that the people who live in the house left the room only a moment before. But if we’re very quiet they might come back.

    Hello you two — nice to hear from you Michelle (and GOOD LUCK with your fundraising!).

    Charlotte Frost has also included this link recently tweeted by Dennis Severs House: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p00t3f42/Ours_to_Keep_Incomers/
    I’m afraid only UK viewers have access to the program.
