Not long after the Romans settled in London, the city became a dominant one and one from which they ruled their province of Britannia. Life in Roman London was hard. The people worked long hours and worked every day of the week. It wasn’t all bad though - they certainly knew how to have fun when they did get some time off. At first Roman London was little more than a military base but over time the soldiers were just part of a mixed population of military and civilians with families, slaves and workers. Fortunately when they moved on, they left fascinating clues to their way of life. From these can work our how they dressed, what they typically ate how they liked to entertain themselves.
