History of Leicester dates back to the Iron Age. The Corieltauvi tribes were the original inhabitants in the area. During the Roman period, the city was as a major trading centre on the Fosse Way. At that time, it was known as Ratae Corieltauvorum. The Romans left the region in the 5th century. Evidences of this period can still be viewed in the modern city. Leicester was then settled by Saxons and the Vikings (In the 9th century). Leicester expanded throughout the 19th century. In 1892, it annexed Aylestone, Knighton, Belgrave and North Evington. The city attained its present boundaries in 1935 when it annexed Humberstone, Beaumont Leys, part of Braunstone, and the remainder of Evington. Leicester became a county borough in 1889. But, it lost its county borough status as a result of the Local Government Act 1972 and became an ordinary district of Leicestershire in 1974. The city regained its unitary status in 1997.
