Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Menai massacre is a name given by Richard Williams Morgan (bardic name 'Mor Meirion', c. 1815-c. 1889) to the report by Tacitus of the slaughter of Druids on the Isle of Anglesey (Mona) under the command of Gaius Suetonius Paulinus during the Roman conquest of Britain in AD 60 or 61. Morgan proposed the event excited the country to a religious war from which Druidism never recovered. The word "Menai" refers to the Menai Strait separating the island from the mainland. The massacre was a key event that led to Boudica's Uprising because Paulinus attacking Mona left the rest of the country open to attack.show more
