The limestone hills around the city and religious site of Aquae Sulis (modern Bath) are rich in remains from the Roman period (43-410 AD), including the uplands of the western part of the Bradford Hundred area.

Even today, most of the northern border of the Hundred is defined by the line of the Roman road from Londinium.

There were major villas near Atworth and at St Laurence School in Bradford and smaller buildings in Westwood, Limpley Stoke and South Wraxall.
