This column is dated 300AD and was a former support of another building that the Roman soldiers of that time built, when they first came into York. The column is located at the end of Yorkminster outside on a paved area and is free to see. If you're seeing Yorkminster this is a mere 3 minutes walk from the entrance... 更多
Went here in the evening, and wow, very interesting! Takes a while to wait out the other visitors to get a decent pic. Just by the minister and the statue...
