Thank you on behalf of the Roman Mancetter & Boudica Exhibition team.
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. If we had X ray eyes we would perhaps be able to uncover much more of the past.
Unfortunately, we can only rely on imprecise 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 this area played in history and how life changed then when the Romans occupied 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 Mancetters Roman name: Manduessedum
