Reconstruction of the Ratae Corieltauvorum
Reconstruction of Ratae Corieltauvorum | Author: Mike Codd

Reconstruction of Ratae Corieltauvorum, a Roman city in Britain, in the place where is now located English Leicester.

The city was probably built on the site of a former barbarian settlement. Originally, Ratae was a rather poor centre, but it gradually expanded. The visualization shows, among other things, the forum, basilica and thermal baths, showing the city already after the 2nd century CE. Freshwater was brought to the city through an aqueduct, and from the end of the 3rd century CE the city received better embankments; and from IV, defence towers were erected.

We don’t know much about the city after it was abandoned in the early 5th century CE by the Romans. It seems that this place was still inhabited in the 6th century.
