The City that went uphill

at Verulamium Museum / St Albans Cathedral

Discover the early history of St Albans from the Iron-Age settlement of Verlamio, through the Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods, and into the Medieval period – traces of which can still be seen today.

Led by a team of experts, participants will start at the Verulamium Museum to explore the earliest settlement, discover what we can learn from Geophysical research and map the changes in the settlement through Roman decline and the Anglo-Saxon period.

Emulating the shift of location and transfer of power between the Roman municipium of Verulamium and the medieval town of St Albans, participants will be invited up to the Cathedral to investigate more into the town which grew up around the Abbey and monastic community there.

The day will end with the opportunity to visit the City that Went Uphill display at St Albans Museum + Gallery.
