Swanage was already an old settlement when, in AD 877, a Viking, fleet was wrecked there: chased by King Alfred, as recorded in the Angle-Saxon Chronicle. The Romans knew the place and quarried its strong for fine work, such as inscribed memorials, found as far away as Colchester. By the 13th century the quarries had become a major industry, with Purbeck 'marble' shipped for use in many of the cathedrals adn churches throughout the Kingdom, and beyond.
