Leeds City Museum (start point)
From the Leeds City Museum to Mandela Gardens cross Millenium Square. Note the temple-like Greco-Roman portico of the Civic Hall (1931-33, by E. Vincent Harris) with its Corinthian columns and also the carved keystone above the side window of a Roman victory monument - an empty suit of a dead enemy's armour hung on a tree. There were Roman forst in Adel and on the site of the Quarry Hill flats (1931-41 to 1978). Note also the golden owls by John Thorpe (2000), sacred bords of Athena, the Greek goddess of the city, wisdom, weaving and war, whom the Romans worshipped as Minerva and also recognised as the goddess of technology.
