What happened to all the Roman architecture in London?
Most of it was buried, some of it deliberately, some of it by neglect and decay, and with no-one to maintain them, they were often turned into building material for other ventures in later centuries.
How far down are Roman remains?
At 40ft (12m), the site is believed to be one of the deepest archaeological digs in London, and the team have removed 3,500 tonnes of soil in six months. More than 100 fragments of Roman writing tablets have been discovered. Some are thought to contain names and addresses, while others contain affectionate letters.
Did Romans conquer Scotland?
The Romans first invaded Britain in 55 BC but did not launch a real and lasting invasion until AD 43. Some 30 years later they reached Scotland, when Julius Agricola launched his campaign in the north in the AD 70’s. By both land and sea, it took only seven years for him to take control of much of Scotland.
