The Roman Mancetter and Boudica Heritage Centre
We would like to thank you for taking time to visit the Roman Mancetter & Boudica Exhibition website and extend the invitation to visit us at the actual exhibition site.
The area around Mancetter is rich in British and Roman history.
Most of this history is hidden to us because after nearly 2000 years things have changed so much.
However, relying on historical recordings from the Roman diarists of the time and our archaeological evidence of past activities.
This Exhibition tells the story of how we grow more certain of the part Mancetter played in history of the Roman conquest of Britain
Our claim to the site of the Battle of Watling Street being here close to Mancetter centres around:
New analysis of the Latin source for the battle site
New perspective on Hartshill Ridge which supports the Latin source: (Particularly the Latin word ‘Faux’)
Research into the meaning of Mancetter’s Roman name: Manduessedum
Saturdays 10.30 a.m. - 2.30 p.m.
ENTRY IS FREE – BUT DONATIONS ARE WELCOMED
