Why are we drawn to (old) places?
…or places with a “history” to be told. What does it give us, that we visit ruins, old houses, ancient battlefields? Why do we prefer objects once used by historical figures, long dead family members, celebrities even? When you hold one of these objects, or go to these places… how/what do you feel? Why?
