In the year 43, the Emperor Claudius himself accepted the surrender of the tribal chiefs at Camulodunum, the first stage of bringing Britain into the Roman Empire. Meanwhile a small settlement called Londinium came into being on the banks of the Tamesis river.
Londinium is where London’s story really starts, and this tour traces its story from a military encampment surrounded by traders to becoming the new capital of Roman Britain. Though it is more than fourteen hundred years since the legions left, Roman London is still present in today’s City in so many ways.
Please meet me outside the Fish Street Hill exit of Monument underground station: look out for my blue 'Footprints of London' hi-vis waistcoat.
