Norwich and the Roman world

I went to Norwich today, since the weather was so fine.  The city itself is well worth a visit, with the remains of the medieval walls, a bustling market and the massive Norman keep on the hill overlooking the city.  And my goodness weren’t there a lot of pretty girls out in the streets!

Just outside the city, at the roundabout with the A140, is a sign to the Roman city of Caistor St. Edmunds.  This is basically a field, which is visible from the A140, with Roman walls at various points.  More photos from here, where a project to do magnetic resonancing was announced in 2006.  But take some food and drink with you; there isn’t a bite of anything to be had on site!
