HISTORY OF IPSWICH
Ipswich is one of England’s oldest towns, it began as a small trading settlement in the 7th century. Due to its position near the coast it was used for trade especially with Germany. However, this closeness to the coastline also had its disadvantages which was demonstrated when it was captured by the Vikings who occupied the town from 869 until 917. After the English had regained control of the Town they retained it until the Norman Conquest.
