In 2002, Gloucester Civic Trust erected a bronze statue of Emperor Nerva, who is acknowledged as the founder of the city of Gloucester [known as Glevum in Roman Britain] in around AD 97. The equestrian statue was sculpted by the world-renowned Anthony Stones and cast at Pangolin's foundry in Chalford.
A stainless steel time capsule was incorporated within the statue's hollow plinth, filled with items relating to the foundation of Roman Gloucester and to life in the present day city. It is hoped that it will remain undisturbed for future generations to find.
The statue stands in Southgate Street, near the entrance to the Eastgate Shopping Centre.

Visited Malvern Flea and Collectors' Fair yesterday [Bank Holiday Monday] and managed to come away with only three (!) sparkly bits for my glass collection:
This is a bird's eye view of a pretty little limited edition Caithness paperweight, designed by the late Colin Terris and made by Peter Holmes. Fully signed on the base and numbered 335/500. No paperwork or box but as I picked it up for next to nothing, it doesn't matter!

Found this pretty little shallow dish and, although not engraved 'Mdina', I'm pretty sure it's genuine and possibly an earlyish piece.
This collage shows from left to right:

The middle-sized side stripe vase came home with me to join his big and little brothers. He's engraved to the base 'Mdina 87'.
