The wonders of London. Part 2

When I was in London last Saturday I made a very brief but wonderful visit to the Roman Wall. Right in the center of London, in the City, near the Tower.

The Romans built the wall when they invaded the British Isles – hold it – in the 2ND CENTURY AD!

 

 

It is still there.

The wall was surrounding Londinium, the Roman settlement which later became you know what.

Just think – these  very stones were laid almost 2000 years ago!

And now I was looking at THE VERY SAME WALL.

I admit – I touched it. It was like touching History itself
