Roman St Albans

Summary

The ancient city of Verulamium grew from an Iron Age settlement, or oppidum, to become a prosperous Roman provincial town.

Destroyed by Boudica in the 1st century AD, it recovered to become a significant Roman town, complete with theatre, forum and basilica. Parts of the city walls still stand and a hypocaust hints at the luxurious lifestyles enjoyed by wealthy Romano-British citizens.
