EXETER : HISTORY AND FACTS
 
EXETER was first intensively occupied and constructed
in the years between A.D. 55-60
by a Roman Legion of 5,500 men. 
A city wall -75% remaining- still stands.
The remains of the bath-house have been excavated
(now recovered with preservative sand)
and is widely accepted as being among 
the most important Roman monuments in Britain.
 
The severance of Britain form the Roman Empire
in A.D. 410 led to a slight slump in the town’s progress.
It was not until the Normans moved in
that such landmarks as the Cathedral 
(notable for excellent towers and superb interior),
and the commencement of the Guildhall took place.
 
During Tudor and Stuart England,
Exeter’s trade and accessibility to Elizabeth’s navy
made Exeter a truly flourishing city
which reached the peak of wealth to its relative size
early in the eighteenth century
when Exeter ranked in the top five of England’s wealthy towns.
 
A woollen recession after the French wars
fashioned a new future for Exeter
as a centre of health, education, administration and distribution
maintained to the present day.
Exeter is truly an historical and beautiful county town.
