Magnetic images at Caistor St. Edmunds

Nottingham University have done a geophysical survey of the Roman town of Caistor St. Edmunds.  The images are splendid, and confirm the town plan.

The town lies outside modern Norwich, in a large field grazed by sheep.  The Roman walls rise around it, battered but still impressive.  A church stands in one corner.  The site is visible from the A140 Ipswich to Norwich road, and is well worth a visit.  There are no tourist amenities there, no tickets to buy.  I always walk a circuit around the Roman walls — it isn’t that far!
