During the four hundred years of the Roman occupation of London the native population must have been influenced by many aspects of Roman civilization. The result was a fusion of native and foreign lifestyles, cultures and fashions. This can be seen in religion which was integral to all aspects of Roman life, operating on many levels, both secular and spiritual, both formal and informal.
Personal religious beliefs were of a more superstitious nature, seeking permission from the gods for their everyday activities and asking them for favours.
Payment might have been with simple personal trinkets or figurines left for the gods in such accepted religious areas and shrines as the banks of the middle Walbrook stream or down religious shafts. The cemetery areas too can show an element of religious belief although it can be difficult to interpret.
