Claudius' Statue
Rendham, Suffolk

Head of the Emperor Claudius This 12" high bronze head of the Emperor Claudius (AD 41-54) was recovered, in 1907, from the River Alde at Rendham in Suffolk. It is the last remnant of an over-life-size statue which almost certainly once stood in the army veterans' colony at nearby Camulodunum (Colchester), possibly in the Temple to Claudius himself. The tilt of the head suggests it was an equestrian statue. It was probably pulled down during Queen Boudica's Revolt of AD 60 and may have been thrown in the river as part of a Celtic depository ritual.
