Wow, is that an old Roman bridge?

Brett, thanks for the post easter flurry...yes I think it was older than that (the way rather than the construction) its in my native UK in Cornwall in Bodmin Moor which was a stronghold of the Romans in their push to storm-troop over the Cornish and southern welsh tribes. This was taken around 2005 or 6 (haven't got my head on yet..lots happening this side)....but we were chasing the King Arthur 'Trail' which ends up in Tintagel North Cornwall, take some looks at that location for a look at the effect the Atlantic can have on your rockface...awesome scenery.

So you're from Cornwall, does that mean you're a Cornwallian?

no I misled you - I am from a neighbouring county (Sussex) albeit born in the South of London our capital city.

Sorry Brent for the name adaptation - I have a boyhood group called 'Brett Marvin and the Thunderbolts' and I sometimes regress

The Cornish are a celtic fringe - have their own language but have no one now living who had it as a mother tongue...but like the Israelis they have evening classes to learn it for those who wish to practice it....but not far advanced as the Welsh who do learn it in some areas as a mother tongue and hence bi-lingual road signs there was a great story recently when a English highway sign maker sent off on the fax a request for a Welsh translation of 'Lorries please go this way into the depot' and got the answer back immediately that he then converted into an aluminum sign ' Which when put up had the locals in read 'I am sorry but I am away from the phone right now should be back soon or send a fax....'

I probably misled you a little as well. I know well who the Cornish were. I am probably a little above the average American when it comes to history, especially that of England and Europe. Though German history and their multiple Reich's have made studying them really troublesome, and not to mention somewhat boring. My three biggest hero's of antiquity or Benjamin Franklin, Rodrigo Diaz (El'Cid) and Frederick Barbarosa.
