What does history smell like?

I ought to know, as according to Push Online, Lancaster has:

"... tourist-fuls of history oozing down its winding little streets."

The randomly italicised overview of the University and city also mentions that:

"Lancaster dates from Roman days and still has plenty of honey-coloured Georgian limestone left to show off at parties."
Buggered if I've seen any - it's sandstone (and a bit older than Georgian, by, oh, a few hundred million years). I don't think I've ever seen honey-coloured limestone, not even in "lumpy Cumbria", nor in the "250 acres of landscaped woods, parklands and fields circling the campus". I wonder if they ever stop circling to let people go home. Maybe not, as it seems students sleep in Alex Square.
