A recently discovered mysterious "winged" structure in England, which in the Roman period may have been used as a temple, presents a puzzle for archaeologists, who say the building has no known parallels.

Built around 1,800 years ago, the structure was discovered in Norfolk, in eastern England, just to the south of the ancient town of Venta Icenorum. The structure has two wings radiating out from a rectangular room that in turn leads to a central room.

Very interesting. A real life mystery.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Would be interesting to know the prevailing wind direction to determine its effectiveness as a wind break for livestock or agricultural needs. Or, could have been the garage for the chariot  ;  )

Interesting, so I wonder what made the Romans change their rigid architectural design?

When I saw "Time Turner" I read "Tina Turner"...

When I think about Tina Turner I think "muscular thighs"

When I saw the drawing... I thought spread out thighs:

I already explained it, Time Turner.

I honestly did read "Tina Turner" when I read your post.

And from then on I got...uhmmm... a bit distracted by the images I had in my mind of Tina Turner.

OK, and sorry if I caused this thread to derail.

Those thighs.....sigh...
