Back from the BNTC

I'M BACK FROM CHESTER after an excellent 2016 British New Testament Conference. Many thanks to Paul Middleton, Matt Collins, Jessica Keady, and all their assistants for their hospitality and hard work to make the conference a success. I'm not going to post a detailed conference report, but I had a chance to visit the ancient Roman ruins in Chester and some photos are below. Click on any image for a larger version.

The Roman baths

Remains of an angle tower at the south-east corner of the Roman fortress of Deva

The amphitheatre. Alert readers may notice two BNTC delegates in the photo.

Some years ago I posted more photos of British Roman ruins here and here (Hadrian's Wall and Vindolanda).
