The city of Norwich is full of history and heritage and it dates all the way back to the Iron Ages, before the Romans invaded in AD 60. Then came the Anglo-Saxons and Normans. This period saw the birth of the Cathedral in 1096, with all of the stone specially shipped across from Caen in northern France; and after nearly 50 years it was completed.  On friday we headed into the city, with the sole purpose of exploring. After a lengthy walk around Tombland (not at all tomb related) we ended up at the Cathedral. We strolled around the cloisters, wandering in awe and taking in the grandeur of the gothic architecture. Mostly unchanged, its like taking a step back in time, delving deep into history.
