The City of Exeter is perhaps one of the few ancient cities in Britain that is rich in its historical heritage. The city is covers the total area of 18.2 Square Miles and its history goes back to the ancient Pre Roman Era of 250 B.C. Due to its prime location on the dry piece of land that is raised enough to overlook the nearby river along with the fertile land, the city was an ideal strategic site. Discovery of the coins that were supposedly used back in 250 B.C dictate that the city was used as a prime trading hub for the surrounding area.
