Retire in beautiful Lincoln!

The city of Lincoln, England has been a Roman outpost since the first century. Situated on the trade route between London and York, the area was first a fortress town and later a colonia, a retirement settlement for soldiers who wished to stay in Britain.

Few clues exist about what life might have been like in Lincoln, known in Roman times as "Lindum," but hints such as a slave's gravestone, offer some insight. A recent feature in the Lincolnshire Echo examines Roman life in the area.
