A bit of Latin

Postby Rowan » Fri September 12th, 2014, 6:55 pm

Hi guys!

I've fallen in to watching Time Team on YouTube and am trying to see if I understood a Latin phrase so I can add it to my Nerd Notes. :p I'm pretty sure that the phrase is: 'capella ad portem' which they said means 'chapel by the gate'. Is this correct in either sense (Latin or its meaning)??

Thanks! :D

Yep, correct on both counts :)
