The Romans during the first century AD invaded and conquered Britain. They brought in Britain their culture and imposed their authority on British population.

Firstly, they involved the conquered tribes in the administration of the province so that they could keep an eye on the subdued population.                                                                                                                                                                         Secondly, they encouraged the growth of towns near their army bases in order to established solid commercial, economic and social relationship. The key point to note is the Romans had a specify idea of economy and therefore the towns were the perfect place where developed it.                                                                                                                                                                            Thirdly, people have not to forget why the Romans were so famous in Britain: they built the roads. Roads were essential because they joined the towns together and they permitted people to move.                                                                                                           Another quality of the Romans is the architecture: they imported in Britain their architecture that reflected their values.                    Towns included a forum, where the Romans met to discuss business; a basilica, in which they can confessed their religion and finally a town-hall useful for administrative matters.

As you can see the Roman society was based on solid values that are reflected also in the place they conquered.
