Gloucester
I would like to tell about the old British city –
Gloucester. I think it should be proud of a long
history, sights and a great role that it plays in life of
the country.
Gloucester is located in the
historic county Gloucestershire
in the South West region of
England
History of Gloucester
At first the city was
used as a military
fortress by the
Romans
After the Fall of Rome,
Gloucester
was
captured
by
the
Anglo-Saxons and by
the 10th century,
Gloucester continued
to be an important
centre
in
the
Kingdom of Mercia.
In the Middle Ages Gloucester was one of the three
most important cities in England and continued to
prosper
During the 19th century Gloucester became an industrial
centre due to nearby deposits of coal, timber and iron
ore.
The population grew that’s why many civic buildings were
built. As the port grew too, larger warehouses were built.
