Interesting Postcards

A childhood obsession of mine, I nearly had a heart attack when I visited Colchester Castle with my son last year and this model wasn't in the place it should have been. Happily, it had just been moved somewhere else. Not much of a story, I know, but it's all I've got on the subject.

The Temple of Claudius was razed to the ground along with the rest of Camulodunum circa AD 60 by a very angry Boudica and her Icenic Army. That's a much better story, I should have gone with that.
