In the south-east of England, in the village of Cressing, traces of roundhouses from the 1st century CE were found that scientists believe may have been destroyed by the Romans after the suppression of the Boudica uprising (61 CE).

Researchers counted the remains of 17 buildings that probably belonged to the Trinobantes tribe. After defeating the united Brits, the Romans carried out an action to punish all tribes that fought on the side of Boudica. Researchers suspect that such a fate befell this settlement, which was formed in a typically defensive style. Interestingly, the place was not inhabited any more.

What’s more, archaeologists have found over 100 brooches and numerous Roman coins, clasps and rings. No traces of burials were found.
