York hypocaust

Foreign Policy blog

Strange place to find this nice picture of a hypocaust in York – if the blog really is about foreign policy.

Anyway, the item is about Heritage Day.

Heritage Officer Nick Herepath views the remains of a Roman hypocaust
hidden beneath a Spud-U-Like outlet on September 11, 2008, in Chester,
England. The Roman hypocaust heated part of a Legionary bath house
above the streets of Chester. The hidden treasure is one of hundreds of
sites opened for Heritage Open Days, an event that celebrates England’s
architecture and culture by offering free access to properties that are
usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission.
