London's Last Roman

The BBC reports on London's Last Roman: "...the result of the radio carbon dating came back from the lab in Florida to which a small bone had been sent. With 70% certainty, it said, the Last Roman had died some time between 390 and 430 AD."

Which is a nice fit with the general time line of the region's history, as "the midpoint stood out - 410, the year that the hard-pressed Roman empire abandoned all claims to Britain."

I look forward to traveling to Europe one day with the children to see so much history with our own eyes. How exciting it must be!
