Location Information

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Alcester was founded by the Romans in around AD 47 as a walled fort. The walled colonia named Alauna developed from the military camp. It was sited on Icknield Street (or Ryknild Street), a Roman road that ran the length of Britannia from the north east near Hadrian’s Wall to southwest England. The town was also just north of the Fosse Way, another important thoroughfare in Roman Britain.
