Early history[ edit ] The earliest evidence of human occupation in Hertfordshire come from a gravel pit in Rickmansworth. The finds of flint tools date back , years,  long before Britain became an island. People have probably lived in the land now called Hertfordshire for about 12, years, since the Mesolithic period  in Ware making Ware one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in Europe. The Romans besieged him at Wheathampstead, and partly because of the defection of the Trinovantes whose King Cassivellaunus had had murdered , the Catuvellauni were forced to surrender.
Cunobelinus became king of the Catuvellauni in 9 or 10 CE and ruled for about thirty years,  conquering such a large area of Britain that the Roman writer Suetonius called him Britannorum Rex in Latin “King of Britain”. When the Romans took over, their settlement, laid out in 49 CE,  became known as Verulamium. Alban , a Roman army officer who became Britain’s first Christian martyr after his arrest at Chantry Island , died in the 3rd or 4th century and gave his name to the modern town of St Albans.
The ancient trackway, the Icknield Way also runs through Hertfordshire. These are three of the “four highways” of medieval England the other being the Fosse Way , which does not run through Hertfordshire which were still the main routes through the country more than a thousand years later. The first Roman Road to be built was the Military Way, constructed very early in the Roman conquest to speed the troops’ access north.
Later, Ermine Street would be built directly on top of it. The Synod also marked the end of the conflict between the Celtic Church and the Romanised church introduced by Saint Augustine.
