“The town I was born and raised in is a very interesting place. It was the last outpost of the Roman empire - they built a wall across the north of England from the west side to the east side and the last place they built was called Segedunum which means the 'end of the wall'. So I was born in Wallsend. They tore down my house and they revealed this roman site, this fortress, and the shipyard was at the end of the street was built over a temple to Mithras."
