Carlisle began as a Roman town called Luguvallium. The Romans invaded Britain in 43 AD and about 78 AD the governor, Agricola, built a wooden fort on the site of Carlisle. Soon a civilian settlement grew up nearby. The soldiers in the fort provided a market for the townspeople’s goods. Roman Carlisle was called Luguvalium. In Roman Carlisle there was probably a forum or market place with the public buildings around it. There was a public baths. In Roman times people went to the baths not just to get clean but also to socialise. However in the 4th century Roman civilisation declined. Troops were withdrawn from Hadrian’s wall in 399 AD and the last Roman soldiers left England in 407 AD. Soon afterwards the Roman way of life broke down and most Roman towns were abandoned. Roman Carlisle was probably left empty or with very few people living inside its walls. Carlisle may not have been abandoned completely. There may have been some farmers living inside the walls and farming the land outside. However it seems certain that Carlisle ceased to be a town and all its Roman buildings fell into ruins.
The Celts gave Carlisle its name. They called it Caer Luel, the fortified place belonging to Luel. St Cuthbert founded a monastery among the ruins of Carlisle in 685. In 876 the Vikings captured Carlisle and sacked it. The monks moved away but some people probably continued to live within the walls of the old Roman town. The Vikings held Carlisle until the 10th century when the Saxons captured it. Carlisle was rebuilt and revived by King William Rufus in 1092. He built a wooden castle at Carlisle (In the 12th century it was rebuilt in stone). Rufus encouraged people to come and live in Carlisle. In the Middle Ages Carlisle was a small town with a population of perhaps 1,500-2,000. It would seem tiny to us but by the standards of the time Carlisle was a fair sized market town. However Cumbria was a poor area of England with little trade and commerce in the region. However Carlisle was strategically important because of its position near the Scottish border. In the 12th century stonewalls were erected around the town. The castle was rebuilt in stone and strengthened in the mid-12th century.
Nevertheless from 1135-1154 Carlisle was in the hands of the Scots. The Scots laid siege to Carlisle for 3 months in 1173 but they were unable to take the town. The Scots returned in 1315 but again they were unable to capture Carlisle. Meanwhile in 1122 a priory (small monastery) was built in Carlisle. In 1133 Carlisle was made the seat of a bishop. In 1223 the friars arrived in Carlisle. The friars were like monks but instead of withdrawing from the world they went out to preach. There were 2 orders of friars in Carlisle, Dominicans (called black friars because of their black costumes) and Franciscans or grey friars. Carlisle was given its first charter in 1158 (a charter was a document granting the townspeople certain rights). In Medieval Carlisle the main industries were wool and leather. Wool was woven and dyed in the town. Leather was tanned. Wool and leather were exported to Ireland. Wine (the drink of the upper class) was imported into Carlisle from France. Carlisle had a weekly market. It also had an annual fair. In the Middle Ages fairs were like markets but they were held only once a year. People would come from all over Cumbria to buy and sell at a Carlisle fair.
However in 1292 Carlisle suffered a disastrous fire. Most of the buildings in Carlisle were of wood with thatched roofs so fire was a constant danger. On the other hand if buildings did burn they could be easily replaced. In Carlisle different trades were organised into guilds to safeguard their member’s interests. There were 8 of them, merchants, butchers, skinners, shoemakers, tanners, tailors, smiths and weavers. In the early 15th century a Guildhall was built where they could hold meetings. The Sauceries probably got its name because the land there belonged to the man who made the king’s sauces. However in 1349 the Black Death devastated the population of Carlisle. It did not recover fully until the 16th century.
