Venta Icenorum

Finally got to explore what I now believe to be the original heart of the Norfolk Broads.
This was the marketplace of the Iceni tribe and this particular site was the precursor to Norfolk as a trading port.
There are enormous similarities with Burgh Castle but nowhere near as much ruins left. It appears it was quarried extensively.
Only when the River Tas became silted up did the whole logistics of the site move to Norwich and ultimately what then became the port of Norwich city up until only a few years ago.
Many will have heard of Boudica and she was the Queen of the Iceni tribe.
I doubt she looked like Xena warrior princess but I can only wonder.
So if Woxham is the heart of commerce now, what location will be the next heart of the Norfolk Broads.
Perhaps Stalham?😒
