London, or Londinium, was founded by the Romans in about AD 50 and soon became the most important city in Britannia. Straddling the River Thames, it was a hive of activity, as it is today. In this accessible and readable book, Roman expert and archaeologist Dr Andrew Tibbs uncovers the hidden history of Roman Londinium and provides a lively and authoritative guide to archaeological remains and excavations, the key museums as well as the hidden sites now concealed by modern London. The book includes a fascinating overview of the development and importance of Roman London, including its foundations, history and trading importance and also the story of what happened to Londinium after the Romans departed. The author reveals the engaging details of daily life in and around Roman London and also provides a timeline for Londinium in the context of Roman Britain and beyond. Including maps and full-colour illustrations, this is a concise and indispensable guide to Roman London.
