A Handook to Roman London

Roman London

A visit to the Museum of London prompted me to check my shelves for guides on Roman London. My Guildhall Museum handbook was written by Ralph Merrifield in 1973. The opening image is the Roman funerary monument from Camomile Street that now welcomes visitors to the Roman gallery.

The sections are:

  • The beginning of London
  • London as the capital of Roman Britain
  • Buildings of Roman London
  • The fort
  • The city wall
  • Roman Londoners
  • Trade and industry in Roman London
  • Religion in Roman London
  • The end of Roman London

There are reconstructions by Alan Sorrell, as well as a map of Roman London.
