Wilton


Historical Background

The fortified town of Wilton dates back to Roman times, where it was a major market town in the area. The great stone walls of the town are also of Roman construction, towering works of concrete and stone block artifice that both serve to intimidate would-be invaders and offer a sheltered area to live for it’s 200~ permanent residents. Since the development of Sarum as the county capital it has suffered for a decrease in trade, however the vivacious marketplace and the determination of it’s local merchants keeps the town afloat, if not in the grandeur it once had. More recently it has become the seat of power for the steward of Alderbury, serving to manage the lands surrounding the county capital of Sarum. In the Yuletide court of 495 a new Keeper of Wilton, Sir Gerin Lotha, was installed to both protect the town and maintain stewardship of the surrounding countryside.
