Elgar’s love of the Malvern Hills is well known but it was his mother, Ann Elgar, who first suggested that he should write a work set on the hills. Caractacus tells the story of a British chieftain who fought the Roman invaders. Eventually defeated at the British Camp on the Malvern Hills (the earthworks of which can still be visited today), Caractacus was taken to Rome for trial but so impressed Emperor Claudius that he was pardoned.
