EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the rich history and architectural marvels of Carlisle Castle in Cumbria. The focal point of this image is a remarkable Roman altar stone, ingeniously repurposed as a door lintel within the castle's walls. This ancient artifact stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of Roman influence in Britain. The intricate details etched onto the surface of the altar stone are beautifully preserved, showcasing exquisite craftsmanship from centuries past. Each delicate carving tells a story, whispering secrets from an era long gone. As one gazes upon this fascinating relic, it becomes evident that it has witnessed countless generations pass through its grand archway. The juxtaposition between Roman antiquity and medieval architecture creates a striking visual contrast within Carlisle Castle's historic grounds. It serves as a reminder that time is not linear but rather interwoven, with each era leaving its indelible mark on the landscape. Alun Bull's expertly captured photograph allows us to appreciate both the artistic beauty and historical significance of this reused Roman altar stone at Carlisle Castle. It invites us to delve into our collective past and ponder how different civilizations have shaped our present-day world. Through Alun Bull's lens, we are transported back in time, standing before this magnificent piece of history that continues to inspire awe and admiration for those who encounter it today.
