This area, including London Covent Garden, was inhabited in 4800 BCE (before the common era) as structures have been unearthed through archeology.

The Roman Empire settled the area in around 100 CE (common era) and called it Londonium. This lasted until the 5th century.

Then it was the Vikings who initially assaulted the coastlines then settled in north-eastern England until the 11th century.

The city evolved in every sense (architecture, governance, religion, and more) from then on. The population grew rapidly through the centuries, despite losing ⅓ during the Black Death in the mid-14th century.
