About Carlisle

Carlisle's history is a record of warfare and strife related to its strategic border position that made it a natural catalyst for warring factions of Scotland and England. But long before their time, at c80AD, the Romans were here, establishing Carlisle as their northernmost settlement. They called their town Luguvalium, and used it as an important supply depot for Hadrian's Wall.

A few remains-Roman sewers, a fort, and houses-were found during excavations. By the 5th century the Romans were gone, and the history of the ensuing times is sketchy. Cuthbert, a bishop of Lindisfarne, was here in 685 after King Egdrid rebuilt and fortified the town. Both the Picts and the Vikings raided the area. In 876 the Vikings completely destroyed the town and its people, rendering it inhabitable.
