Rome wasn't built in a day..

From Copper Lodge near Welshpool and Newtown Kathy and Angelo nipped over the border to visit the fascinating Roman City of Wroxeter.
An innovative Channel 4 programme instigated the construction of a recreated Roman Town House on the site. A team of modern builders built the house using traditional Roman methods supervised by Professor Dai Morgan Evans (a good Welsh name) with a Roman building manual written 2000 years ago by engineer Vitruvius.
The result is this remarkable building now open to the public.
