A Roman eagle in London again

From London Independent.

A Roman eagle sculpture, around 1800 years old, has been dug up near Aldgate and is on display at the Museum of London. In excess of two feet tall, an amazing piece, quite possibly from some big shot’s tomb.

Worth a visit; that museum is a great place.
