Some interesting facts about Canterbury, Kent

The Canterbury area has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Lower Paleolithic axes, and Neolithic and Bronze Age pots have been found in the area. Canterbury was first recorded as the main settlement of the Celtic tribe, the Cantiaci, which inhabited most of modern day Kent. In the 1st century AD, the Romans captured the settlement, and named it Durovernum Cantiacorum, meaning "stronghold of the Cantiaci by the alder grove". The Romans rebuilt the city, with new streets in a grid pattern, a theatre, a temple, a forum and public baths. In the late 3rd century, to defend against attack from barbarians, the Romans built around the city an earth bank and a wall with seven gates, which enclosed an area of 130 acres (53 ha).

After the Romans left Britain, 410 AD, Durovernum Cantiacorum was rejected, with the exception of a few farmers, and gradually deteriorated. The next 100 years of Anglo-Saxon Community formed within the walls, as the refugees arrived Jutish possibly intermarried with the locals. Jutes Cantwaraburh takes its name from the city, which means "people of Fort Kent". In 597 AD, Pope Gregory the Great sent Augustine to convert King Ethelbert Kent to Christianity. After the conversion, Canterbury, as a Roman city, was chosen as the center of S. Augustine Episcopal Kent, and the abbey and the cathedral was built. Augustine became the first Archbishop of Canterbury. New meaning for the city led to its rebirth, and shops designed ceramics, textiles and leather. Since 630, the gold coins were struck in Canterbury mint. In 672 the Synod of Hertford to see of Canterbury, gave the authority of the whole English Church.

In 842 and 851, Canterbury has suffered a great loss of life during the Danish invasions. In 978, Archbishop Dunstan restored the abbey built by Augustine, and called the Abbey of St. Augustine. A second wave of Danish attacks began in 991 and in 1011 the cathedral was burned and Archbishop Alphege was killed. Remember the destruction of the Danes, the inhabitants of Canterbury did not resist William the Conqueror invaded in 1066 William immediately ordered a wooden Motte and Bailey castle was built on Roman walls. At the beginning of 12 century, the castle was rebuilt in stone.

After the murder of Archbishop Thomas Becket in the cathedral in 1170, Canterbury became one of the most remarkable in Europe, as pilgrims from all parts of Christendom came to visit her shrine. This pilgrimage provided the framework for Geoffrey Chaucer's 14th century collection of stories, The Canterbury Tales.

Canterbury Black Death struck in 1348. At 10000, Canterbury had the tenth largest population in England by the 16th century, the population had dwindled to 3,000. In 1363, during the Hundred Years War, a commission of inquiry concluded that the stone ruins, and a gateway to steal led to the Roman wall is eroded. Between 1378 and 1402, virtually the wall was rebuilt, and new rounds of the wall were added. In 1381, during the Peasants' Revolt, the castle and the palace of the archbishop were dismissed, and the Archbishop of Sudbury was beheaded in London. Sudbury is still remembered annually by the Mayor's Christmas Parade in his tomb in Canterbury Cathedral. In 1413 Henry IV became the only monarch buried in the cathedral. In 1448, Canterbury was granted a city charter, which gave a mayor and sheriff, the city still has a mayor and sheriff. In 1504, the tower of the Cathedral, Bell Harry Tower was completed, ending 400 years of construction.

During the dissolution of the monasteries, the Monastery of the convents of the city, a monastery and three were closed. St Augustine's Abbey, the richest 14 in England at the time, was surrendered to the Crown and its church and cloister were destroyed. The rest of the abbey was dismantled in the next 15 years, although part of the site was transformed into a palace. Shrine of Thomas Becket in the cathedral was demolished and all the gold, silver and jewelry were taken from the Tower of London, and images of Becket, the name and the holidays were eliminated in the kingdom, ending a pilgrimage .

From 17 th century, Canterbury had a population of 5,000, of which 2000 were Protestant French Huguenots, who had begun to flee persecution and war in the Spanish Netherlands in the mid-16 th century. Huguenots established silk weaving town, which in 1676 had exceeded the weaving of wool.

In 1620, Robert Cushman negotiated the lease of the Mayflower at 59 Palace Street to transport pilgrims to America.

In 1647, during the English Civil War, riots broke out when the mayor of Canterbury forbids Puritan church services on Christmas Day. The trial of the rioters, the following year led to a rebellion against the parliamentary forces contributing Kent early in the second phase of the war. But Canterbury surrendered peacefully to parliamentarians after their victory at the Battle of Maidstone.
