Thank you writing such an interesting article. I would not have thought Christianity would have reach Britain quite that early. I wonder how long the people of Britain kept up the roman habits after the troops left the island.

Dear Lucy, it was a pleasure to be there in that mysterious place. One hopes you are well? Don't forget the Romans, brought many plants to Britain. Bay trees, sage, oregano and thyme to say the least!
My most kindest Regards to your goodself, and the family!
Group hug
Neil.

Big on herbs were they? I am not big on grass which I was clearing out of the iris beds this afternoon. John is trying to get a lot of work done that I can't, like mowing the grass in front of our wall along the street. He has a cataract operation on Sept 17 & as I remember you can't bend over for 2 weeks. I have had that operation on both of my eyes. The weather has turned cool again which I am glad to see. Hope that you are doing well. Lucy

What a very nice article, Neil, you know how I love ancient history and its artifacts and buildings. Lucky you to get to see and photograph it. Lucky us that you shared! Thanks so much, I love all the pictures.

Dear Sharon, I adored doing that Article. I was taken to the villa when I was was a boy by my grandma and aunt. It was a wonderful day with grandma, investigating all the ancient history, and then scones, jam and cream in a Kent tea house. So to go back there again and photograph it, then share it was special to me. We have lots of Roman stuff in the UK, and indeed lots still being found.
I so hope you are well?
Going to do an Article on this shortly, Leeds castle in Kent .
Beautiful and wondrous gardens.
Tons of hugs.
Neil.
