Walking through Leicester today and it is often difficult to appreciate that we are treading on 2,000 years of history, but beneath the city’s streets are the remains of Ratae Corieltavorum, the Civitas capital of the people known to the Romans as the Corieltavi. In Roman Leicester: Life in the Roman world, Mathew Morris looks at what the latest archaeological research tells us about how Leicester evolved from an Iron Age settlement into a Roman city, and what life was like in the Roman world.
