As someone interested in history I couldn't resist go inf to look at a tower that dates back to Roman times. Definitely worth having a closer look.

When you think that something has been standing for 2,000 years, its kind of mind boggling to think of what this structure has witnessed. This place has real Roman caskets that we made 2,000 years ago and have stayed there for that long. Incredible. It...More

While this is "just" an octagonal stone tower and doesn't merit a second glance... It is in fact part of the Roman walls of York - and so is 1800 years old. Amazing that it has survived so long, so well and so extensively
