Carousing in Carlisle

Carlisle is a town in Cumbria, it is ten miles from the southern border of Scotland and is an excellent place to spend a few days away and enjoying your favourite flavour of e-liquids and or take drive to one of the three Medusa Juice Vape Shop locations in King’s Lynn, Peterborough and Norwich.

History and People

The early history of Carlisle is commemorated by its status as a Roman settlement, established to serve the forts on Hadrian’s Wall. During the Middle Ages, because of its proximity to the Kingdom of Scotland, Carlisle became an important military stronghold. Carlisle Castle, still relatively intact, was built in 1092 by William Rufus, and once served as a prison for Mary, Queen of Scots. The castle now houses the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment and the Border Regiment Museum. In the early 12th century, Henry I allowed the foundation of a priory in Carlisle. The town gained the status of a city when its diocese was formed in 1133, and the priory became Carlisle Cathedral.
A thriving community, Carlisle is nicknamed the Great Border City. Today, Carlisle is the main cultural, commercial and industrial centre for north Cumbria. It is home to the main campuses of the University of Cumbria and a variety of museums and heritage centres.
The most of what is known of the ancient history of Carlisle is derived mainly from archaeological evidence and the works of the Roman historian Tacitus. The earliest recorded inhabitants were the Carvetii tribe of Britons who made up the main population of ancient Cumbria and North Lancashire. According to Boethius and John of Fordun, Carlisle existed before the arrival of the Romans in Britain and was one of the strongest British towns at the time. In the time of the emperor Nero, it was said to have burned down.
Excavations undertaken along Annetwell Street in the 70s dated the Roman timber fort constructed at the site of present Carlisle Castle to the winter of AD 73, protecting a strategic location overlooking the confluence of the Caldew and Eden rivers. This walled civitas, possibly the only one in northwest Britain, presumably served as the tribal centre of the Carvetii on the model of other such sites in Roman Britain.
The two Roman generals Cn. Julius Agricola and Q. Petillius Cerealis advanced through Solway in the year 79 AD, as they continued their campaign further north. Due to this, it is likely that greater control was achieved at Carlisle over anti-imperial groups. This is possibly indicated from the reconstruction of the fort at Carlisle in 83 AD using oak timbers from further afield, rather than local alder. At this time the Roman fort was garrisoned by a five hundred strong cavalry regiment, the Ala Gallorum Sebosiana.
There’s so much to do and see in Carlisle, including the great historical sites and parks, which you can enjoy while also enjoying the best e-liquids, e-cigs and equipment from Medusa Juice Vape Shop. Don’t forget too that they have redesigned their clothing line and so you can dress up in style in one of their hoodies, tee shirts or snapbacks.

Romans, soldiers and fires, oh my!

Unrest played a big part in Carlisle history and the period of late antiquity after Roman rule saw Cumbria organised as the native British kingdom of Rheged. It is likely that the kingdom took its name from a major stronghold within it; this has been suggested to have been broadly coterminous with the Civitas Carvetiorum, Carlisle. King Urien and his son and successor Owain became the subjects of a great deal of Arthurian legend. Their capital has been identified as the Cair Ligualid listed by Nennius among the Twenty-eight cities of Britain. For the rest of the first millennium, Carlisle was an important stronghold contested by several entities who warred over the area, including the Brythonic Kingdom of Strathclyde and the Anglian kingdom of Northumbria. In 685 AD, St Cuthbert, visiting the Queen of Northumbria in her sister’s monastery at Carlisle, was taken to see the city walls and a marvellously constructed Roman fountain.
By the time of the Norman conquest in 1066, Carlisle was part of Scotland. It was not recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book. This changed in 1092, when William the Conqueror’s son William Rufus invaded the region and incorporated Cumberland and Carlisle into England. The construction of Carlisle Castle began in 1093 on the same site of the Roman fort, south of the River Eden. The castle was rebuilt in stone in 1112, with a keep and the city walls. The walls enclosed the city south of the castle and included three gates to the west, south, and east called the Irish or Caldewgate, the English or Botchergate, and the Scotch Gate respectively. The names of the gates exist in road names of Carlisle today. Carlisle Cathedral was built in 1133.
