Bringing together recent research, this traces the development of Caistor Roman town in Norfolk from its origins in the 1st century CE through post-Roman occupation up until the present day.

 

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.
