Gloucester is a city that has stood at the heart of English life for 2,000 years. Founded by the Romans in the first century AD, Gloucester became an integral part of the Saxon kingdom. A medieval city, designed in part by the daughter of Alfred the Great, Gloucester is the birthplace of the Domesday Book, the burial place of kings, and the site of the last coronation to take place outside London. From the Roman legions to the armies of Charles I and Parliament, Gloucester has proven to be a city of key strategic importance. Whether hosting Parliaments, or making religious martyrs, Gloucester has produced men and women who have helped shape the modern world. This book will provide you with the history of the people, places and events that have shaped one of the great Cities of England.
