Whatever happened to the Roman soldiers of York?
Why haven't we posted a word about that famous story yet? a concerned reader asked.
You know, the one about the poor chap who went into a cellar to do some maintenance or repair work and must have drilled too far into the wall or something, because an entire company of Roman soldiers, not to mention the horse, came out of the wall - surely you've heard about it?
If you haven't, don't worry.
Either the Search function doesn't work properly, or the reader somehow missed the search results, but we certainly did write about it, albeit within a post discussing a different matter.
Here it is, complete with resurrected links.
P.S. If you're looking for ancient Romans in Great Britain, you might want to have a peep at these, too: The Last of the Romans.
N.B. Please, excuse the messy and generally deteriorated appearance of this blog.
Yesterday Blogger must have suffered some particularly ill effects of the full moon, because it almost ate our blog entirely. We have spent two days trying to undo the damage, but it appears to be a lobotomy.
High time for Google to renew its brain - or at least some of its local grey cells...
