What were the roads like?
One of the first roads the Romans built was the main road which ran east-
west through Londinium and continued on to Silchester. Archaeologists have
excavated it at several sites, including 1 Poultry. It was 9 metres wide
with a drain at either side and was made from a solid slab of brickearth
with compacted gravel on top. By the late 4th century it had been
resurfaced 12 times and risen over a metre in height.
