For most of the past 1,000 years, London has been the most dominant city in the world, ruling over so much land that it was said the sun never set on the British Empire. With the possible exception of Rome, no city has ever been more important or influential than London in human history. Thus it was only fitting that it was the Romans who established London as a prominent city. Londinium was initially little more than a small military outpost near the northern boundary of the Roman province of Britannia, but its access to the River Thames and the North Sea made it a valuable location for a port. During the middle of the first century AD, the Romans conducted another invasion of the British Isles, after which Londinium began to grow rapidly. As the Romans stationed legions there to defend against the Britons, Londinium became a thriving international port, allowing trade with Rome and other cities across the empire.

I didn't know that!
A concise and easily assimilated history of the port of Londinium during Roman occupation. Based on archaeology and writing, this thesis covers architecture, religious beliefs and practices, the role of the military in shaping the adaptive culture, and more. I feel that it was very well done and I enjoyed the learning process.
Robert Diepenbach has a pleasant voice with a sense of interest in the material and did a great job.
