Roman Life: iPhone and iPad App

For anyone out there who uses an iPhone or iPad, there is an app that can show you the streets of Roman London.
Roman London where you can ‘excavate’ finds, using your fingers to dig and gradually reveal ancient artefacts where they were originally found. iPhone users can remove dirt by blowing into their microphone.Key Roman London sites, such as the amphitheatre and Temple of Mithras, have been brought to life through augmented reality video (iPhone only) – produced by HISTORY™ – showing scenes of Roman London, overlaid onto the view today. A soundscape to the Roman capital is also included, so you can listen to the hustle and bustle of the forum or the clamour of the Boudican rebellion.

I think that this would be great for any enthusiast visiting London, or who wants to learn about Roman London in an interactive and exciting way.
