Brief History of Thatcham

The history of the town of Thatcham spans thousands of years. Numerous artefacts and burial sites have been discovered nearby, providing proof that the area was inhabited by people in the prehistoric age. According to popular belief, the name "Thatcham" derives from the Old English terms "thaec" (which means thatch) and "ham" (which means settlement), reflecting the town's long-standing connection to thatched-roof structures.

Thatcham was a significant town during the Roman era along the Ermin Street route that connected the Roman towns of Silchester and Cirencester. In the region, the Romans built a road station, and artefacts from their time, such as ceramics and coins, have been found.
