The Stones of Preuilly-sur-Claise

At first, this stone which I dug out of the garden may not look like much.

Get it in the right light, however, and a much more interesting picture emerges.

Likewise with this piece of stone which forms part of our "garden" border.

It is impossible to get a photo to show any detail, but once again, in the right light;

We do not know where the stones came from, but they are stylistically from different eras - a classical column base (or capital?) and a 15th century mullioned window frame. Of course, one would like to think that the column comes from one of the Gallo-Roman buildings of the original Preuilly, but that may be just a little over ambitious...............
