This marble head was found in a garden shed in Radwell. What was it doing there? A large Roman villa was discovered nearby and the plough damage on the head may suggest that it came from this site. It is thought to depict Germanicus, brother of Emperor Claudius I and father of Emperor Caligula. It dates from the early 1st century AD. But why was a sculpture made of someone who died 24 years before the Romans conquered Britain? It looks like an official portrait and therefore may have been a gift to a local ruler before the conquest. This was a time full of change for Britain and the Radwell Head gives us a local insight into this period of history.
