Day 16 - March 16th 2013

Following on from yesterday's 'Ides of March' question, today neatly links this Roman theme back to a bit of Bureau history. Way back when there was just the one Bureau shop - in Covent Garden - along came another. This one was in the City of London, on London Wall. The City is a strange place - busy in very concentrated moments, dead at others. Despite having lived in London almost all my life I still find the City is something of a mysterious place - I know it in bits but so rarely go there outside of weekends when it can resemble the film set from 28 Days Later. Anyway, London Wall is so named because it runs along the line of the old Roman wall around London. So, today's question is...

Q:  Where did Julius Caesar lead the Romans across the Thames? Was it at...?

A - Greenwich

B - Brentford

C - Windsor

A: Brentford - see Wikipedia here (look under Urban Development) and also other sources here and here.
