Positive side effects of being bombed?

This is a fragment of the original wall that surrounded Londinium, as it was in Roman times, now overshadowed by the tower blocks of the city.

The wall, built in the 2nd and 3rd centuries, was rediscovered during World War II when the debris from the Blitz was being cleared and it was found that the old Roman wall had been built over in subsequent centuries.

Very interesting. In what form are they preserving it? Can people go 'down' there?

I have always thought that Bognor Regis was improved after the IRA bombed it in the 1990s but this is much better! How lovely that these Roman remains were found as a result of the Blitz.
