History of Reading
Settlements in Reading date back to the 18th century, when it was a monastery having royal connections; Henry I during 1121 founded the Abbey but it was also badly affected during the 14th century by the Black Death, losing more than 60% of the population. Again, by 1525, it was the biggest cloth-trading town in Berkshire, but the town lost a lot of trade during the English Civil war, but later started the brewing trade as well as some important iron works, making it famous and it became a large manufacturing centre in the 19th century. Today, Reading is a bustling commercial centre for the IT sector as well as insurance. It is a retail centre and is home to the University of Reading. The major attractions here consist of medieval Abbey ruins, the rivers Thames and the Kennet. Reading is also the place where Oscar Wilde was imprisoned in the gaol here.
