The city of Newcastle-uponTyne has a very diverse architectural history. It began as a Roman fort and the Romans built the first bridge over the Tyne, which they named Pons Aelius. In the Middle Ages, Newcastle’s position on the river gave it a strategic advantage, and this prompted Richard I to build a castle here, hence the name ‘New Castle.’ The castle keep still survives, though much of it was destroyed to make way for the Victorian railway that cuts through the city.
