VESTIGES OF THE WALL WHICH THE ROMANS BUILT FOR LONDON

VESTIGES OF THE WALL WHICH THE ROMANS BUILT FOR LONDON

In the churchyard of St. Giles', Cripplegate (bottom), stands a bastion of the City wall whose foundations show that it was once a tower of me Roman wall. The fact that it stood within the limits of the churchyard has saved it from destruction. The tower does not seem high because the ground level has risen in course of time-about nineteen feet in places since London was Augusta. Another churchyard has given sanctuary to the Roman wall, though the church itself-St. Alphage, London Wall (top)-has gone.
