Roman Historical Attractions Main

T

he landscape and culture of Iron Age Britain changed dramatically when the Romans arrived in AD43. Considered to be a peripheral colony of the great Roman Empire, the invaders soon put their unmistakable stamp on the sprawling chaos of iron-age settlements. 25 planned towns were created, legionary fortresses were strategically placed around the country, and long straight roads were laid down to provide ease of communication between the military outposts. In the north, the massive Hadrian's Wall was constructed to define the limit of Roman rule, and in the southern part of the country, hundreds of villas were constructed during the 360 years of Roman occupation.

There are many Roman sites in the United Kingdom that are open to the public. Many of these sites that do not require special access, including Roman roads, and sites that have not been uncovered. Others though, do cost some money and often you get what you pay for.

Attractions around Britain

Britain Roman sites constitute an integral part of the major tourist attractions of the country. While most Roman ruins of Britain are supervised by English Heritage, some of the sites are administered by National Trust. The Roman sites of Britain are scattered all over the country. The Britain Roman sites are found in places like Avon, Glasgow, Scotland, Wiltshire, West Midlands, Somerset, London, Kent, Hertfordshire, Gloucestershire, Cumbria, Cambridgeshire, Yorkshire, Wales, West Sussex, Tyne and Wear, North Yorkshire, Lancashire, Isle of Wright, Gwynedd, Dorset, and Cheshire.
