Celtic Britons farming communities were established along the banks of the River Thames centuries before Christ. Although Julius Caesar came on a reconnaissance mission around 55BC, it was nearly100 years later before the full-scale Roman Invasion began under the Emperor Claudius in 43 AD when the Roman city of Londinium was established. Then, as it is now, it was vibrant and multicultural. When the Romans left in 410AD, there were waves of successive invasions; the Angles, the Saxons, the Danes, the Jutes, the Vikings until finally in 1066, Briton and London was invaded successfully for the last time under William the Conqueror and his Norman lords. In the subsequent one thousand years, London was ravaged by pestilence, fire, civil disorder and war, but continued to prosper. Men and women from all over the world made their homes by the banks of the River Thames. They included scientists and philosophers, writers and musicians, artists, not forgetting vagabonds and thieves!
