Norwich is a city in the district of Norfolk with a cathedral and a population of 144,000 people. The cathedral city claims to be the most complete Mediaeval city in the United Kingdom. It was England's first UNESCO City of Literature.
Norwich is a city reaped in history and legend, with the original settlement being the Iceni tribe's capital 5 miles south of modern Norwich.
After an uprising led by Boudica in 60AD, the village became a Roman Capital of East Anglia.
Then in Anglo-Saxon times, modern Norwich was founded, emerging as an important market town for most of the Mediaeval period.
The cathedral began construction in 1096 and played an essential role in the English Civil War in the 1600s. In the 20th century, Norwich went from a market and cathedral town to a manufacturing industrial city.
Unfortunately, during the second world war, the city suffered extensive damage due to bombing — it had the highest air raid casualties in the East of England.
