    Didcot – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Didcot Hoard
      In 1995 an amateur metal detectorist uncovered 400 Roman coins. With 126 coins that were made between AD 54 – 160, the hoard is now on display at Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum. The incredible find led to more archelogy in the area that went on to discover even more about the Didcot’s past.
    2. 7000BC
      In 2010 an archaeological survey was done in the area that was scheduled to be the site of a new housing development. Over 3 years the team found traces of settlement dating back to 7000BC, the end of the last Ice Age. The early finds showed hunter gatherers were operating in the area, there was a site used for ‘exposure burials’ (where the body would sit on a raised platform and the bones picked clean by birds and animals) plus a 3,600 year old Neolithic bowl.
    3. COD Didcot
      In 1914 an army officer passed through Didcot train station. While waiting for his train he realised the potential of Dicot as a base for munitions and supplies. On a major rail station, in the centre of England, surrounded by fields, it made the perfect back-up for Woolwich arsenal. A site was soon built that occupied 600 acres and supplied everything from bombs and bullet to blankets, horseshoes, uniforms, it boasted it could provide the army with anything in 48 hours and was helped by the Oxford College’s Volunteer Force and Eton’s Officer Training Corps. The depot played an important part in supplying the troops ahead of the D-Day Invasion in 1944.
    4. Wibaldinton
      During Saxon times the town was known as Wigbaldinton meaning the settlement of Wigbald’s people and the town retained the name until the 1150’s.
    5. Oops! My Bad!
      At the time of the Anarchy, Robert D’Albini gave Didcot manor to King Henry II who was the eldest son of Empress Matilda and embroiled in a bloody war for the English throne. The gift was actually by way of apology for hitting Henry with a stone during the siege of Bedford Castle.
    6. Normal
      In 2017 a study was conducted by number-crunchers to research UK averages. The findings revealed that Didcot was the most ‘normal’ town in England as the scores here most accurately represented the nation as a whole.
