Doncaster's origins lie in its role as a Roman camp. The entrance to a Roman military fort was marked by spears stuck into the ground and lit fires. This piece echoes those themes.

Part of Phase 2 of Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council 'Quality Streets Project' (1997-1998).

The project is part-financed by the Eurpean Community and by the Government's Challenge Fund through the Single Regeneration Budget.
