Presented by Dr Fraser Hunter, Principle Curator of Iron Age and Roman Collections at the National Museum of Scotland.
There was a long and tangled relationship between Romans and locals on Britain’s northern frontier – and both sides were changed radically by the experience. For a long time, Roman historical sources and Roman military archaeology were the main pieces of evidence used. In recent years, however, archaeology has given voice to the local side of the story. This talk will use the latest perspectivees from archaeology to rewrite the history, telling tales from the edge of the empire which are complex, intricate and fascinating.
Following the talk, there will also be an opportunity to look at Roman artefacts from the collections at The University of Nottingham Museum.
