Did you know?

The fortunes of the Catuvellauni and their kings can be traced through ancient coins.


This particular type of stater received its type name, Whaddon Chase, from a hoard of over 320 such pieces which were turned up by a plow in a field called Narbury on the Whaddon Hall estate, Buckinghamshire, on February 14, 1849. The surrounding countryside is known as Whaddon Chase, the name still in use today. This area is well within the territory of the Catuvellaunia.
