Saint Alban was the first Christian martyr in Britain, becoming a saint of the Catholic Church. According to the church, he was a pagan who converted to Christianity and was executed either circa 304 or 309, by beheading on a hill above the Roman settlement of Verulamium. St. Albans Abbey at St Albans, Hertfordshire, England was later founded near this site.
