Leicester is one of the oldest cities in England, with a history going back at least two millennia. St Nicholas’s Church and the Jewry Wall. It is believed that the Romans arrived in the Leicester area around AD 47, during their conquest of southern Britain. Knowledge of the town following the Roman withdrawal from Britain is limited. Certainly there is some continuation of occupation of the town, though on a much reduced scale in the 5th and 6th centuries. The settlement was recorded under the name Ligeraceaster in the early 10th century.
