Roman roads, together with Roman aqueducts and the vast standing Roman army, constituted the three most impressive features of the Roman Empire. In Britain, as in their other provinces, the Romans constructed a comprehensive network of paved trunk roads (i.e. surfaced highways) during their nearly four centuries of occupation (43 - 410 AD).

Is this legit? Because if it is, I think that Britain has jumped a couple of spaces in my list of countries that we can make fun of. (Trust me, America's high on it)

Little Moreton Hall is a moated 15th-century half-timbered manor house 4 miles southwest of Congleton, Cheshire. It is one of the finest examples of timber-framed domestic architecture in England. The earliest parts of the house were built  around 1450; the remainder was constructed in various campaigns by three successive generations of the family until around 1580.

Erected in 1599, The Globe was London’s first theater built by and for actors. As one of seven shareholders in the company that commissioned it (not to mention the company’s chief playwright), Shakespeare probably had some say in the theater’s design. He wrote many of his plays, from Julius Caesar on, with this venue in mind. To quote the bard, "O for a muse of fire!" Henry V
