Over 1000 Roman soldiers worked for the provincial governor in London. They were housed in a stone fort built in AD110. Some ninety years later, Roman construction workers began to build the first City Wall, using more than one million blocks of ragstone shipped in from Kent on over 1750 boat loads. This massive defensive stone wall stretched almost three kilometres, from Blackfriars in the west to where the Tower of London now stands in the east.

Thw width of the fort wall (1.2m) was doubled and its height (4.5m) increased to 6m when the City Wall was built in AD 200.
