England has three general weather-types: wet and warm, wet and windy, and wet and cold.

In England we don't tan. That healthy glow comes from rusting slightly.

One-minute non-skippable ad. Why do they think that's a good idea?

About the Roman "ghosts" in York. York has had people living there for about 10,000 years. Why, out of all that time, would the ghosts be from the most "famous" era (and show something as mundane as a bunch of squaddies bimbling along a road)? If I'd imagined a ghost sighting in York (as the workman did) I'd put more imagination into it than that. "I saw a small boy in medieval sort of clothes. He spoke to me saying <this bit of Anglo-saxon I'd learned especially for my story>..." ... "I saw an army of bearded men with spears and smelled smoke. There was blood everywhere...". Good thinking on the "knee deep in the ground" idea but no cigar for imagination.

If anything I would expect Viking or Saxon ghosts. They fought over the place quite a bit.
