About Canterbury

Canterbury is a city steeped in history and occupation of the area can be traced back to many centuries before Christ. Little was known about its ancestors until after World War II, when bombs laid many parts of Canterbury bare, allowing archaeologists to delve into Canterbury's past. The area in which Canterbury is situated was once a boggy wasteland, but gradually over time, with prehistoric mans' advancement in tools and implements, the area was cultivated and cleared for settlement.

Due to threats from the continent, fortified villages such as the fort of Bigbury near Harbledown were built. The Romans first came to Canterbury under the command of Julius Caesar in 55 and 54 B.C. and the people living there were found to be quite civilised. After taking hostages and money the Romans left for a century. In 43 A.D. a full scale invasion was launched, as Canterbury and surrounding areas posed a threat due to their links with the Gauls. By A.D. a Roman civil settlement existed.

Canterbury was an important capital as it connected 3 trading ports to London. Canterbury had all the luxuries of a Roman city such as theaters, baths, temples, forums and intricately mosaiced houses. With the invasion of the Angles, Saxons and Jutes and their rivalry for control of England, Canterbury was abandoned and left in ruins. It was left overgrown for more than a century before new timber buildings were built over the roman village, but most dwellings were outside the Roman walls.
