You may remember from an earlier post Calleva Atrebatum – City of the Dead how recent work on the Silchester site is changing our understanding of the Roman and Iron Age period. In particular, some archaeologists now believe that there was Iron Age / Celtic town on the site. This would be very significant, and it is thought to have developed in the period between Caesar’s invasions of Britain and the full conquest.
This theory is excellently explained in third episode of A History of Ancient Britain with Neil Oliver. The link takes you to the iplayer page. Really interesting stuff happening on our doorstep.
