Derbyshire was the geographical centre of Roman Britain. Derby, Chesterfield, Buxton and many places in the White and Dark Peaks hosted forts, farms and industries, including home-grown Derbyshire Ware pottery, all connected by numerous Roman roads. Surviving antiquities, standing ruins, field marks and coin hoards are reminders of the intertwined lives of Romans and native people in Roman Derbyshire. Tales of lost antiquities and legends about those left behind when the Romans withdrew, with some suggesting that local dialect words carry a record of a continued Roman influence down the centuries, are also part of the story.
