Vindolanda

"Listen, lad. I've built this kingdom up from nothing. When I started here, all there was, was swamp. All the kings said I was daft to build a castle in a swamp, but I built it all the same, just to show 'em. It sank into the swamp. So, I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third one. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. An' that's what your gonna get, lad -- the strongest castle in these islands." (Monty Python and the Holy Grail).
