Founded in 43 Ad by the Romans when they invaded Britain, London was at the time a communication focal point and grew as the tears went by. It was the provincial capital of Roman Britain by the first century and by the middle of the third century the population was numbering well over thirty thousand inhabitants.

London is the city where the famous William Shakespeare and Ben Johnson and lived and made their mark on the world. The city was hit with two major disasters during this century it was destroyed by fire that destroyed close to two thirds of the city and was also hit by the plague that killed over seventy thousand people. This prompted the then king Charles II to decree that new houses be built out of bricks and the whole city was then transformed.

Up until the late nineteenth century London was a violent place and also dirty and wretched, and there was a lot of poverty. This bled many Londoners to drink and it is said that there was a gin shop to seventy-five residents.
