Stevenage lies near the line of the Roman road from Verulamium to Baldock.
Some Romano-British remains were discovered during the building of the New Town.
A hoard of 2,000 silver Roman coins was discovered in 1986 during new house building in the Chells Manor area.
The most substantial evidence of activity from Roman times is Six Hills.
A little to the east of the Roman sites the first Saxon camp was made in a clearing in the woods where the church, manor house and the first village were later built. Settlements also sprang up in Chells, Broadwater and Shephall (though before the New Town Shephall was a separate parish and Broadwater was split between the parishes of Shephall and Knebworth).
In the Domesday Book the Lord of the Manor was the Abbot of Westminster Abbey. The settlement had moved down to the Great North Road and in 1281 it was granted a Royal Charter to hold a weekly market and annual fair (still held in the High Street).
