Swindon is a town in what was the county of Wiltshire in south west England. In the Domesday Book of 1086 it was recorded as Suindune which is believed to mean swine, or pig, hill, deriving from the Anglo-Saxon, although alternatively it could mean Sweyn’s hill with Sweyn being a personal name. Swindon Hill has been a centre of human settlement since early times as it has a commanding view of the surrounding area and a water supply. The Portland limestone rock in the area was quarried by the Romans who lived on the hill, and when they left Britain in the 5th century AD the Saxons took over the settlement. Modern Swindon has spread from the hill to cover the land around it and as with any modern town, accident on the road in Swindon are common, although not all are serious ones.
