Upside Down?

Emperor Constantine is gazing across towards one of the Roman columns which stood within the Roman Great Hall or Principia. This column was found beneath the South Transept of the Minster during excavations in 1969. It was re-erected to stand opposite the south door of the Minster in 1971 to commemorate York's 1900th birthday. The debate still rages about whether it is placed the correct way up…………. or not. What do you think?


  1. I know little about columns so have no idea! Nice to get a good debate going though.

  2. Looks the wrong way up to me, I think....

  3. It doesn't matter to me, I just like the fact that it's so old and found in so historic a place.

    And I want some sandals like he's got.
