Good bits

Via Where the Hell Was I?, RE: the Romans in London…

Near the Tower Hill tube station is a remnant of a Roman wall, built (partially, at least) over 1500 years ago. Even surrounded by old, older, and really old stuff all around, that’s pretty impressive. And it’s a big freaking stone wall, too. How the hell do you get a wall to stand for more than a millennium? I built a bird house once. It collapsed in the first stiff wind that came along. These guys were good.
