Buildings from all three cities All three cities have their gems… and their eyesores

A band of intrepid crusaders strolls around the lost ruins of an ancient city with one question on their minds: can anything be salvaged?

They have not stumbled upon the crumbling remains of Atlantis or ancient Troy.

They are, instead, surveying the remains of the lost city of Leicester.
