History and Myth

The Dean Hall site is saturated in history and myth spanning at least 2000 years.  From the days of Caractacus through the Romans to the Civil War and beyond.

Our aim is to collate, within the following pages, all the stories and evidences which include the historical sources and archaeological record.  There is a rich tapestry of myth, part of which has been handed down through the generations who have lived at Dean Hall, whilst more still is retained in the local culture of the Forest of Dean.
