Cultural Irony…and the Roman Coin

There has to be some irony here I think……but nonetheless, great to see Australian architects DCM deliver an evocative architectural work next to Stonehenge, Europe’s best-known prehistoric monument in the UK. Aussie Architects taking their sensibilities back to UK to grapple with a druidic temple! Especially love the pic with the fog…can just imagine a couple of Druids sweeping out of the dampness and confronting the DCM edifice. ( or have I been watching too much Dr. Who over the years )

PS: Always felt it would be interesting if some archaeologist in Australia was to unearth a few Roman coins in an Aboriginal Midden somewhere….Forget the Dutch, the Portuguese and the Brits “discovering” Terra Incognito…The ROMANS !! ….. Leichhardt and Lygon St Melbourne would erupt in celebration!!!
