Spaces and Places

Today I didst but muse ye moderns might longe for some glimpse of the spaces and places in mine age and playes, so here I have for thee Dunsinane Hill from Perthshire, Scotland. I didst write of this space in mine playe of Macbeth, and 'tis the site of Malcolm's one defeat of Macbeth in 1054, though Macbeth did not lose his life here, as I hath noted in mine playe. (I doth protest Holinshed hath erred in his Chronicles!).
