Remember, I warned you.

Do not blame me if you read past this sentence.  I am giving you your final warning.

In 2014, my school bookfair theme was the Renaissance.  So I started doing some research (something I did not enjoy when I was in school, but really enjoy now) on songs from the Renaissance.

I was suprised by the number of nursery rhythms that were not about happy times in the world.

For example, Ring A Round the Rosie also called Ring a Ring o' Roses.

There were a few different explainations of this song but I liked this one the best:

Let us go back to London when people did not bath and there was a lot of garbage in the streets.  This was probably the time of the Great Plague of 1665.

"Ring around the rosie" refers to a ring around a sore, probably red near the neck.

"A pocket full of posies" refers to flowers or herbs people put in the pockets of the sick person to make them smell better.

"Ashes, Ashes" was probably achoe, achoe, referring to a coughing fit a person had just before "We all Fall Down" died.

This is an easy quiz, what is the last number of the year from the Great Plague.

What do you think that number is referring to in this area?

2 03 January 2016 ithink314 Didn't find it

We gave this a good effort but came away without a find. Saw several munzees, and a lot of the course along the way though.

Thanks, QueensGrantMusic, for setting this up!
