Rufus

Rufus - the red-head - was the son of William the Conqueror. The story of his mysterious death in the New Forest in the year 1099 is told in 'The Hunt' chapter of THE FOREST. The place today is marked by the Rufus Stone - or is it? This mystery, also, forms part of the tale of THE FOREST.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The Guillotine lives on! Within Paris’ 11th district, at the corner of the streets of La Croix-Faubin and Roquette, there are five concrete plates that pop out of the asphalt around them. Those five spots are what is left from the French guillotine. These marks of the former French judicial system have been kept and are still visible today.
