Roman Town Of Chesterton

Earliest Settlement of Chesterton, Fosse Way
(light green field - lower left in photo)

The small Roman town of Chesterton is no longer.
Not surprising since it dates back to (hold on to your hats)
140 AD.

Near the spot where I am standing is a
sign which gives details better than I can.
Please enlarge to read.

On top of the hill where I am standing is a beautiful windmill.
Less than a mile away is the present village of Chesterton.

For more about Chesterton Windmill - please follow the link to my 
blog post earlier this month - HERE.

Participating in Skywatch Friday

Have a super weekend!

As an historian, I find this absolutely fascinating. If only time-travel were a reality! I'd go back for a day or two!

I'd love to pay the place a visit! Beautiful shots, Lauren.

You somehow convey the 'ancientness' very well. Love the tartan on the Roman era man
