For many centuries, Hackney was a rural area close to, but not part of, central London life. The area was rich in woodland and marshes and the few people who lived here probably worked the land to provide food for Roman London. It is thought that the area’s name came from a Saxon settlement dating back to the 5 th or 6 th centuries.
