In Topic: Bathory family

a film was released in July of this year entitled "Bathory" It stars Anna Friel as The Countess. Members in the UK might remember her as taking part in the first lesbian kiss on British TV in the soap opera "Brookside".
I will post a review of the folm if and when it is shown here in Glasgow.

My home as a child (Bearsden near Glasgow) was built virtually on top of the walls foundation. When my father was doing a bit of gardening, he would often turn up small pieces of pottery. Wish I had kept them now.
