Dorchester is the county town of Dorset and has been so since 1305. It lies on the River Frome, 20 miles west of Poole and eight miles north of Weymouth. Dorchester’s roots stem back to prehistoric times. Settlements were first based around Maiden Castle, an impressive Iron Age hill fort that was one of the most powerful settlements in pre-Roman Britain. The fort had been inhabited by various tribes since 4000BC. The Durotriges were likely to have been there at the arrival of the Romans in AD43 and there’s plenty of evidence of the battles fought on the massive earth ramparts. The town still has some Roman features, including part of the town walls and the foundations of a Roman town house. There are many Roman finds in the County Museum. Near the town centre is Maumbury Rings, an ancient British earthwork converted by the Romans for use as an amphitheatre. In 1613 and 1725 great fires destroyed large parts of the town, but some of the mediaeval buildings, including Judge Jeffreys’ lodgings, and the Tudor almshouse survive in the town centre. The Town Pump is a central point in Dorchester – located next to Dorchester’s Corn Exchange and the impressive clock tower. Here, visitors will find an information board, outlining four popular historic walks around the town.
Dorchester was founded by the Romans. (Although the area was inhabited for thousands of years before they arrived. Stone age farmers erected the enclosure known as Maumbury Rings). The Romans invaded Southeast England in 43 AD and they quickly subdued the area we now call Dorset. By about 60 AD a town grew up at Dorchester. It was called Durnovaria and at first it seems to have been a primitive ‘frontier town’ with only wooden buildings.
However in the 2nd century AD stone buildings were erected in Dorchester. The town was fortified with a ditch and an earth embankment, probably with a wooden stockade on top. The town had a forum or marketplace lined with shops and public buildings. There was also a public baths. Water was bought into the town by aqueduct. Some rich people had mosaic floors and even a form of central heating. However most people in Roman Dorchester lived in simple wooden houses, covered in plaster. The Romans also converted Maumbary Rings into an amphitheatre. They watched ‘sports’ like cock fighting there. On special occasions gladiators may have fought to the death there.
