Another moon-shot, taken outside Bath Abbey a week or so ago. No reason, I just like it, so I've put it up. The Abbey is the only reason Bath is called a 'city' - in reality, it is a smallish town with a village mentality. The abbey used to dominate the town in former times, and was where Adelard - the monk who introduced the concept of 'zero' to European mathematics - lived. Britain's oldest surviving poem was also composed in Bath. It was written by a traveler in the 8th century AD, after he had wandered around the Roman ruins, a few hundred years after they had left. They didn't leave for about 300 years after the fall of the Roman Empire, though. I don't think they left at all, in fact, but just moved into the countryside and married into the locals. There was no point in going back to Rome, nor any money to do so.
Here is 'The Ruin' translated from the Anglo Saxon into Modern English:
