It may be said of some very old places ... the nearer we approach them, the more remote they seem; the more we study them, the more we have yet to learn. Each season beholds the exploration of new sites, and each explorer has some new thing to tell ... The interest never flags – the subject never palls upon us – the mine is never exhausted.
