Here's a picture I took that shows the excavated Roman columns.

They're a good three foot under the current surface. I initially thought they'd somehow sunk, but the EH guy assured me they're in their original spot.

After years of looking at remains that are 4,000 years old, and still at the same level as they where when erected, I can't understand where all that thousands of tonnes of soil on top of Wroxeter Roman city comes from. I must be missing something really obvious.
