Thetford East Anglia A Travellers Guide - The Ancient Royal Residence of King James and Boudica: Thetford is a small town that is established among the forest parks which bear its name and it is positioned on the principal A11 highway between Cambridge and Norwich. Home to a populace of about twenty two thousand residents, Thetford is an attractive market town having a history going back about two thousand years.

Boudica or Boadicea, was Queen of the Iceni through marriage to King Prasutagus in the first century AD. Their tribe held sway the area of Britain we now call East Anglia, and the seat of their power was around the forests of Thetford. From here they carried out assaults on the Romans until such time as their actions were quashed by order of the Roman Emperor. Thetford remained a significant town despite the demise of their King and Queen and has been ceaselessly occupied in some form or other since then. In the late 1970s a treasure hoard was uncovered near to the town which hails from the the 4th century. That ancient array Celtic pendants, inscribed, rings and other jewellery is on permanent display in the British Museum (London) and is one of the most important finds in Great Britain.
