“One of the largest” Roman temple in Britain

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A dig has revealed "one of the largest" temple buildings in Roman Britain.

The 2nd Century temple site at Caistor St Edmund, near Norwich, has been known about since 1957, but its true scale has only just emerged.

It was built by the Iceni tribe, best known for their leader Boudicca who rebelled against the Romans in AD61.

Archaeologist Prof Will Bowden said its size, 20m by 20m (65ft by 65ft), showed "how important this cult was to the Iceni".
