Iron Age and Roman

(c. 800 BC—c. AD 410)

By the late Iron Age, as part of the Corieltauvi tribe, boundary systems and trade routes multiplied, coinage appeared, and settlements ranged from small farmsteads to hillforts and more extensive centres. After the Roman conquest, there is evidence of town life, complete with forum and public baths, whilst in the countryside, villas were built, and long-distance roads laid down.
