Roman stuff found in London.

There has been stuff found in London - Roman stuff. In an excavation due to a construction project at Bloomberg Place, really amazing finds from Roman times have been made, including very well-preserved organic material.

You can read more about it in this BBC News thingie, or on the Museum of London archaeology site (where they have a pic of a shoe).

This is really, really wow - and even though I am usually not so enamoured with the Romans and their stuff, I am looking forward very much to what else will come out of that dig, and what all we can learn from it!

That shoe is "wow" all by itself--both in the detailed cutwork and the remarkable condition it's in after 2000 years!
