Etymology[ edit ] The name Monmouth is an English contraction of 'Monnow-mouth'. The Welsh name for the river, Mynwy, which may originally have meant "fast-flowing", was anglicised as Monnow. Indeed, the Council for British Archaeology have designated Monmouth as one of the top ten towns in Britain for archaeology. Archaeologists have found Roman pottery and coins within the modern town centre. During the later Roman period, between the 2nd and late 4th centuries, it appears to have been a centre for iron working , using the local iron ores and charcoal also worked at nearby Gobannium Abergavenny and Ariconium near Ross-on-Wye. The only evidence of continuing settlement at Monmouth is a record of a 7th-century church, at an unknown location within the town, dedicated to the Welsh saint Cadoc.
