Local History

UPDATE: It is a pity, but I have to report that the road discovered below was in fact only 18th Century. As a result of this more recent dating, it was not deemed worthy of saving. However, we are grateful of a brief glimpse into the past.

A small slice of history has been unearthed in my home city. It had been just a short way beneath our feet and we never knew! A Roman or Saxon road has been found under excavation works in Victoria Square as part of the Midland Metro expansion works.

About E S Moxon

E S MOXON has had a lifelong passion for history and writing. A childhood filled with family visits to ancient burial sites and stone circles fuelled her imagination. Inspired by classic medieval tales and Norse sagas, Elaine imagined herself inhabiting these Dark Ages and exploring the landscapes in her mind and continues to do so through her novels. The first in her ‘Wolf Spear Saga’ series is ‘WULFSUNA’ and books two and three will be out soon. When not lost in pages of the past, she lives in the Midlands with her family.
