Who lived in Londinium?
The first Londoners were probably soldiers and administrators. They came
here to rule the new province. Classicianus, the second Procurator, came
from Germany. Merchants and crafts-people followed. They did building work
and supplied trade goods to the new town. At first there were probably more
men than women in Londinium. Some men brought their families too.
