First stage: from 600 BC. At that time the Romans founded one of the Forums on the territory of modern Lyon. In facts this place didn’t have a city status; it wasn’t a fortress or a permanent residence of the colonists. It was probably a trading centre.
Second stage: from the III century BC. That was the time when new houses were built on the banks of two rivers, Rhône and Saône, to make permanent settlements for people. This territory was strategically important not only for trading and transportation, but also for wars that often took place during that period of time.
Third stage: the foundation of the city Lyon (43 BC). A permanent Roman settlement was necessary at that time and one of the commanders in the army of Julius Caesar, Lucius Munatius Plancus, decided to start the city construction on the large scale. Mud huts and wooden houses were preplaced by stone buildings; new roads, thermaes, aqueducts and forums were built.
