Welcome Friends!

Use the text buttons on the left and right to display the plans of the forty largest walled-towns in Roman Britain, displayed here in order of descending size and oriented with north at the top. With the exception of Ilchester, London and the coloniae - Colchester, Lincoln and Gloucester - all of the towns on the left are British tribal capitals. Clicking on any of the buttons will load a page dedicated to the town in question. To redisplay this text, hover the mouse over the 4-acres icon at bottom left.

This page is based on diagrams from the excellent publication:
Town and Country in Roman Britain by A.L.F. Rivet (Hutchinson, 1958; figs.2-5)
