Actual Roman Walls, People

Toulouse is Roman Gaul and these are Roman walls in the city. The last picture is mostly medieval, but it's built on a Roman wall at base. I love the modern road signs - it's the thing I particularly love about Toulouse that the past is so present there.

Sister Rose and I saw some incredible Roman walls and even a bit of Actual Roman Road - yes, the Actual Surface of an Actual Roman Road that Actual Romans (and Gauls) and their horses and their dogs had Actually Walked Upon. This was in the basement of the Palais de Justice which had very high security. So no pictures, alas.
