400-Year-Old Note Found Under Floorboards Gives An Historical Insight Into 17th Century

In a world that has seen many different periods, buildings across the globe give us some of the most interesting and exciting insights into the past. With areas of land that show ancient kingdoms built thousands of years ago as well as the historical buildings that were built so perfectly, with bare hands, after people were ordered to do so by the lands ruling king or queen. We are lucky to be able to see and visit such places and with the hard work that historians and archaeologists do, we are able to understand much more about these places and the people who existed at the time. It is common, that dated building will eventually end up being protected by a trust of some sort, who see it as only right to history, that these places of the past are restored, maintained and honored well as time goes on. It is usually during such projects that exciting items can be found, in which we are given a first-hand look into how many used to live.

Past Time

When it comes to buildings built in the past, without many knowing, the residence can hold historical items that tell of a completely different time, and when restoration work began on an old manor house, workers discovered something under the floorboards that left them in disbelief as well as a sense of excitement.

Not only that, but it dated all the way back to the 17th century, from 1601 through to the 1700s.

Traditional Building With A Secret

The house was nestled deep in the English countryside, a place many see on movies or wish you visit. With traditional cottages, castles, estates, and manors it is a truly stunning area that can really push you back into a forgotten time. The manor house in question was built centuries ago and is time-honored in all sense.

A stone building with green vine wrapping its way up the turret’s of the entrance area, it was there high into the attic, that the item, dating from 1603 was found. In a room full of dust and cobwebs, the workers were told all objects had been cleared out of the space, but that wasn’t the case.
