  London Wall - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
London Wall was the defensive wall built by the Romans around Londinium, their strategically important port town on the River Thames in England.
The wall was constructed largely from Kentish ragstone brought by water from Maidstone.
The wall appears to have been built in the late 2nd century and continued to be developed until at least the end of the 4th century, making it among the last major building projects undertaken by the Romans before their withdrawal from Britain in 410.

The City of London is now a major business and commercial centre, ranking alongside New York City as the leading centre of global finance.
In the medieval period the City was the full extent of London (as distinct from the nearby but then-separate village of Westminster, which became the City of Westminster), but the term London now refers to a much larger conurbation containing both 'cities'.
The area of the City of London has been administered separately since 886, when Alfred the Great appointed his son-in-law Earl Æthelred of Mercia as Governor of London.
