Production Comment

“Why did they need a toilet so big?” A classic question raised whist surveying this incredible compact Roman Fortress town, well worth a visit, everything within easy walking distance including the golf, rugby, bowling and football clubs. The question arose when surveying and photographing the remains of a Roman ruins. A family was stood in one corner where there was an illustration of soldiers going about their business in the communal toilet, when mum asked me “Do you know anything about this site?.” “A little” I replied. “Why did they need a toilet so big?” “No madam, this was the barracks, you’re standing in the toilet” With a shriek she quickly vacated the area. “I wouldn’t worry” I said “I shouldn’t think there is anything in there, they left about nineteen hundred years ago!” Most surveys I have done over the years involve speaking with curious locals and this was no exception, they were keen to tell me the history of their town including why the Royal Standard always flies, but that’s another story. It was though the first time I have been recruited to help find a runaway dog!
