The Menai massacre is a name given by Richard Williams Morgan (bardic name Mor Meirion, c. 1815-c. 1889) to the report by Tacitus of the slaughter of Druids on Anglesey (Mona, Modern Welsh: Ynys Môn) under the command of Gaius Suetonius Paulinus during the Roman conquest of Britain in AD 60 or 61. Morgan proposed the event excited the country to a religious war from which Druidism never recovered.
