International trade through this port would have been mainly sheep's wool and woollen clothes for which Britain was famous.Silver coins were also minted in London (then called Lundenwic by the Saxon inhabitants).The original Roman settlement stretched from The Walbrook river (Cannon Street Station) in the west to the Tower of London (which did not exist) in the east.The second river is the Fleet just over a quarter of a mile west of the Walbrook which is a much larger river and flows north south under present day Ludgate circus and Farringdon street.The remainder of eastern and northern England was ruled by the Danish Vikings.That is commencing in London, east of the river Lea and Lea Marshes and running north south through present day Wathamstow. This was a relatively stable division as the Saxon rulers in London persuaded the Danish Vikings to stay in their allocated territory in return for a regular monthly income of silver pennies minted in London.Roman London eventually stretched from the Tower (built 1000 years later) in the east to the Fleet River in the west.London Wall was the northern boundary and over a bridge (on the site of present day London Bridge) to present day Southwark described the city limits in the south .
Starting in the west at present day Blackfriars Bridge walk north only about 200 yards to "Ludgate" (now Ludgate circus).When the Romans arrived they quickly chose the London area as the HQ for all activities in their new island colony perhaps because the area between present day Cannon Street Station and the Tower of London, on the north bank of the River Thames made an ideal port and with quick access to high ground. In addition, at this point two smaller rivers join the Thames from the north providing easy access to extra clean drinking water and additional defence from attackers.
