    From SETEIA EST to DVNVM SINVS
     
    From SETEIA EST to DVNVM SINVS today: the Mersey to the Tees. And in Waterstones, Middlesborough, I bought a copy of the OS maps illuminating the features of Ancient Britain and Roman Britain, in preparation for holiday explorations.

    In both these dock-towns little has changed since past times: there's still shipping, and still shopping (though both are bigger-volume than ever before); the sports stadia are central (The Riverside rises godlike beside Teesside cranes); but the chariots are faster - two-and-a-quarter hours door to door. A good day among friends.
