Description

In July 1928 an RAF aerial reconnaissance flight captured a remarkable series of images showing the streets and buildings of a vanished town appearing as pale lines in the arable fields below.  This was Caistor Roman Town in Norfolk, also known as Venta Icenorum, the largest Roman town in East Anglia and one of only a small number of major Roman sites in the country not buried beneath later successors.

This brief history traces the development of the Roman town from its origins in the 1st century CE through post-Roman occupation up until the present day, bringing together recent research which has transformed our understanding of this nationally important site.

This is a completely new edition of the guide printed in full colour with many new photographs.

About The Author

Frances and Michael Holmes

We love living in Norwich and not only enjoy researching and documenting projects but also being able to share our work. We are the first to admit that we are more “enthusiasts” than historians and although we set ourselves high standards, we believe that such activity should be fun. As a team we can each work to our strengths which allows us to present our work in a variety of media: books, websites, presentations and film.

Michael has lived in Norwich all of his life, Frances arrived in 1983 for a year but could never find a good enough reason to leave! After a career in IT, Michael is the techie whilst Frances’ background, involving links with both the corporate and voluntary sectors, is used to good effect in organising and researching. We particularly enjoy meeting and working with a huge range of people from many different backgrounds and helping to preserve and promote Norwich’s rich heritage.
