York, City of two Empires: the Roman wall and Minister

York, City of two Empires: the Roman wall and Minister

In the garden of the Territorial Association's Headquarters there was discovered in 1912 yet another portion of the wall which the armies of Rome built to defend the city of Eboracum near the limit of their great Empire. It should be borne in mind that Eboracum was the principal military base in Britain. It was the famous Ninth Legion who began making a military camp into a great city.
