About Canterbury Computing

My name is Krys Squires, and I named my business after my home town in England.

I've been taking computers apart since I was 11 years old. (fortunately I have since learned how to put them back together)

I formed Canterbury Computing in 2003, after moving to the United States from England.

Julius Caesar led the first Roman expeditionary force to Canterbury in 55BC, and the settlement was conquered by the forces of Claudius in 43AD. The Romans stayed nearly 400 years, and have left an indelible mark on the city.

The world-famous cathedral was founded by St. Augustine shortly after his arrival in 597AD.

Because of the wealth stored in the cathedral, Canterbury suffered heavily under Viking attacks during the 9th, 10th and 11th centuries, at one point resulting in the entire population being slaughtered or enslaved. 

Possibly Canterbury's most famous archbishop was Thomas Beckett, murdered on the orders of King Henry II in 1170.

This incident resulted in huge numbers of pilgrims flocking to the city, making it a very prosperous community, and spawning Chaucer's famous "Canterbury Tales"

Heavily damaged during WW2, and then further by a 60's rebuilding program, Canterbury is now undergoing an ambitious renewal, and it's many historic sites are well worth a visit. Only 60 miles from London, it's a comfortable day trip.
