You are on the right track, or should I say street, buildings come and they go.

If I were to rent a car & drive there, which BMW model should I choose out of M1, M3, or M5. Or should I choose the Audi A1?

Thats an excellent question

Audi would be best but not an A1,
A BMW would also be very good,I think M1 or M6 would be equally good.
Do Audi make an A5?

The road starts in London and ends in the home of the Druids
and you would be driving the Audi

Random comment - otherwise I have no clues

OK The road in the picture is the Watling street. Even by modern standards the Romans moved pretty fast around here and by Roman standards what happened here was really fast

There is also a clue with the picture

Bumped the picture up - it's 3 pages back now...

Is there a lady with a 'take no prisoners attitude' involved?

Im afraid this is more 1940s than AD40s
No chariots Involved, but Roman standards is a clue, in a way. I was thinking more of the symbol of the roman standards and what sort of locomotion the symbol used (too cryptic ?) you seem to have the area correct though
Would a map reference be helpfull, or another photo
This is close to the centre of Roman Britain and when AlanK said Magna Carta he was in the right ball Park

So we're talking about someone who enabled an entire segment of high society?

Interesting park, but the Air Commodore is more interesting.

I thinks its fair to say Alan you have been the engine for this solution
I thought Id link it to the MSR question
well done
The history of the park is more interesting than the park itself and of course involves the Air Commodore

What In The World Happened Here? LXII (62):

Bill Clinton could have dropped his tool here. Wagga already knows this one.

I do?

{font:Times New Roman}{b}{color:#FF0000}What In The World Happened Here? LXII (62):{/color}{/b}{/font}

Above is forum code for titles. Substitute [ and ] for { and } and you will get correct color and the pretty serifs.

Titling makes it clear that this is a new game.

Quiz will be still here - it is not going anywhere. What was there originally never got to go where it was intended.
