Chester began when the Romans built a fort next to the River Dee about 75 AD. The Roman fort was called Deva. At first the fort was made of wood. It had a ditch outside and an earth embankment with a wooden palisade on top. At the beginning of the 2nd century parts of the fort were rebuilt in stone. In Roman Chester there was a large amphitheatre were people were entertained by gladiators or by cruel ‘sports’ such as cock fighting and bear baiting. However in the 4th century Roman civilisation began to break down. In England people drifted away from the towns like Chester and they were left almost or wholly abandoned. What happened to Chester after the Romans left is not known for certain. There may have been a small number of people living within the walls of the old town, farming the land outside.
After the Romans left England and Wales split into rival kingdoms. Chester probably lay within a northern Welsh kingdom. However the Saxons invaded eastern England and pushed westwards. By the 7th century they had reached Cheshire. About 617 AD a battle was fought at Chester between the Welsh and the Saxons. The Saxons won and Chester fell into their hands. The Saxons gave Chester its name. They called any group of Roman buildings a ceaster. In time this was corrupted to Chester. In the 9th century the Danes invaded England. In the winter of 893/94 a Danish army made use of the old Roman fort. They wintered there and were besieged by Alfred the Great. In the early 10th century Chester was made into a burgh or fortified settlement. The Saxons had a policy of creating burghs across their kingdom as strongholds in case of Danish attack. Streets were laid out in Chester and people were encouraged to come and live there. Soon Chester was a flourishing little town with a mint and a weekly market.
Chester thrived in the early Middle Ages. It still imported luxuries like wine and traded with places like Ireland and North Wales. In Chester the main industry was leather. There were skinners and tanners. There were also glovers, shoemakers and saddlers. Some wool was also woven in the town and exported. Chester 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 Cheshire to buy and sell at a Chester fair. In the Middle Ages craftsmen dug cellars under their houses and sold their wares from a room at the front of the house. In Chester the bedrock is only a short distance under the soil so ‘cellars’ were built at least partly above ground. Craftsmen sold goods from balconies on the first floor. This is the origin of the Chester Rows.
The Kaleyard gate was built in 1274 so that monks could reach the yard where they grew kale. The Water Tower was built in 1322. In the late Middle Ages Chester may have had a population of about 4,000 (although a great many people died in the Black Death of 1349). However in the 15th century the port of Chester declined as the river Dee silted up. In 1092 the Saxon church of St Werburgh was converted into an abbey. Then in the mid 12th century a nunnery was built in Chester. In the 13th century the friars arrived in Chester. Friars were like monks but instead of withdrawing from the world they went out to preach. There were 3 orders of friars in Chester. The Dominicans arrived in 1236. They were known as black friars because of their black costumes. Franciscans or grey friars followed them in 1237. Lastly the Carmelites of white friars came to Chester by 1277. In the Middle Ages the church founded ‘hospitals’. There were 3 of them at Chester including St Leonards, a leper hostel about 1 mile from the town. Like all Medieval towns Chester suffered outbreaks of fire. This was a constant hazard as most buildings were made of wood with thatched roofs. There were fires in Chester in 1115 and 1278.
