Lincoln's history predates the Romans and it was not until the 3rd century AD that the Roman settlement of Lindum was established there.
The Normans took less time in deciding on a major centre here. A castle was built shortly after the conquest and the cathedral was started in the 1070s. This is a wonderful building, one of England's three largest and with a tower whose height is only surpassed by Salisbury Cathedral. Originally it had an absolutely massive tower more than twice the height of the present one, whichnot too surprisingly failed to weather a 16th century storm.
There is still some Norman [Romanesque] work left but most of the cathedral, including the majestic nave shows splendid examples of Early English style.
Of other buildings the Jew's House, dating from the middle of the 12th century and there are quite a number of 14th and 15th century buildings as well as Tudor half-timbered houses.
