Description: From the Roman settlement onwards, London's docks and its world-wide maritime connections have played a major role in the development of the City and in the growth of its commercial institutions. At the same time, however, the development of London as a port has been encouraged by the commercial, financial and political growth of the ever-expanding metropolis.
