Ever heard of...?

Ever heard of Chester?



This is a beautiful city in the Chesire county, home to more than 120.000 inhabitants. It was founded in the year 79 AD under the name Deva Victrix; it used to be a castrum, a Latin term for fortresses and other buildings constructed for military defence. After the Norman Conquest (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_conquest_of_England) in 1066, the city was renamed after the Earl of Chester. The city is enclosed by Britain's most complete city walls (as lenghty as 3 km).
