Description

Excerpt from A Descriptive Catalogue of the Antiquities Found in the Excavations at the New Royal Exchange, Preserved in the Museum of the Corporation of London: Preceded by an Introduction Containing an Account of Their Discovery, With Some Particulars and Suggestions Relating to Roman London The very valuable though concise description of Londinium by Tacitus in a.d. 61, shows that it was a pacific and an un defended British town, without walls; and regarded, at least by the Romans, as no more than a secondary station. Saeto nius, says the Annalist, as translated by Murphy, marched through the heart of the country as far as London; a place not dignified with the name of a colony, but the chief residence of merchants, and the great mart of trade and commerce. At that place he meant to fix the seat of war; but, re ecting on the scanty numbers of his little army, and the fatal rashness of Cerealis, he resolved to quit that station, and, by giving up one post, secure the rest of the province. Neither supplica tions nor the tears of the inhabitants could induce him to change his design. The signal for the march was given. All who chose to follow his banner were taken under his protec tion. Of all those who, on account of their advanced age, the weakness of their sex, or the attractions of the situation, remained behind fell beneath the power of the enemyd.
