Tullie House - museum and art gallery in Carlisle, Cumbria, Lake District, UK

Those who read The Eagle of the Ninth will be thrilled (according to the Guardian!), as I was, to know that in Tullie House Museum in Carlisle is a tile stamped with the insignia of the Roman legion that vanished from the records after being based in northern Britain. (This is the subject of the novel).

We find loads of 9th Legion tile stamps in York - I often get to handle them, as my archaeological specialism is brick and tile :-) I think the writer of the article was desperately looking for an 'angle' there!

How about this for a design for a wall painting, in the tried-and-true Art Nouveau style?: http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWN3L, by the famous English artist, Audrey Beardsley himself. You can also order a canvas print of the picture from wahooart.com.
