REMINISCENCES OF ROMAN DAYS AT LINCOLN, SILCHESTER, DEAL AND RICHBOROUGH CASTLE

REMINISCENCES OF ROMAN DAYS AT LINCOLN, SILCHESTER, DEAL AND RICHBOROUGH CASTLE

At the end of the street called Bailgate, in Lincoln (bottom left), is the better of the only two surviving Roman gateways in England. The small arch on the right was for pedestrian traffic, the ground level, of course, having risen with the centuries, and the bases of the road arch are now some feet under the ground. Silchester (bottom right) can be reached from Reading by going along the Basingstoke road to Threemile Cross and then through Stratfield Mortimer. Our photograph shows the foundations of the earliest Christian church known in England. The beach near Deal (top left) is the traditional landing-place of Julius Caesar, though the coast-line has altered since. At Richborough (top right)s in Kent, were the barracks of a legion.
