A map of Roman roads in Britain

Begins by using a map to show the first Roman road to be built in Britain: Watling Street, which ran between Richborough and Chester. It then shows Ermine Street, which ran from London to York, and Foss Way, which ran from Ilchester to Lincoln. It details that the Romans had built over 8,000 miles of roads over Britain by the end of the first century and shows how the roads were built by Roman soldiers.
