That word: “Manchester”. Where does it come from?

Forget what Jeanette Winterson said on Radio 4. It’s nothing to do with the Roman “Mamucium” (place of the breast-shaped hill).

On this ancient walk we explore Manchester from the earliest days – before the Romans – to the arrival of the invading force from southern Europe with their pagan gods and Latin homework primers and their role in creating Mamucium, Mancestre and … Manchester.

The only block of remaining wall in Manchester. Will we find it on our tour?
