Some facts from the history of London
London is an ancient city. It was founded more than twenty centuries ago. When the Romans began invading the country was a small village.
The Romans built London, which they called Londinium. It was a big and rich city with clean streets, beautiful palaces, shops and villas. The word "Londinium" is probably of Celtic origin, meaning "lake fortress". You might be wondering why the lake is a fortress, because you know that London is on a river, but not on a lake. This is true, but during the tide in the sea the waters of the River Thames cover almost the entire territory where the city stood on a large lake, except for a high hill that is not covered by water, and was chosen as the place where the First Fortress was built. It was the first of the earth, and then the stone. The lines where the walls of this fortress became the boundary of the City of London.
