The capital of the Atrebates was at Calleva (Silchester) and the bronze horse found there (now in the Reading Museum) is clearly based on the Uffington Horse but is always shown facing left for some reason (the design is repeated on both sides). Flip it over and you see the horse all joined up, as perhaps it was in those days.
The territory of the Atrebates once ran from the Thames down to the sea but by AD43 it had shrunk to the southern-most settlement at Noviomagus (Chichester). The bones of the story may be found in Martin Henig’s The Heirs of King Verica in which we are introduced to Togidubnus, once called ‘Great King’ but now almost entirely forgotten. Yet he was the first, according to Henig, of a line that includes Arthur and Alfred who shaped the nation now called England.
