The Bernard Rawes Annual Lecture

Dr Alex Smith: Settlement in Roman Britian

A major new research project is currently underway at the University of Reading, drawing on data from largely un-tapped ‘grey literature’ and marrying it with published material to significantly improve our understanding of the Romano-British countryside.

This talk will discuss the progress of this project to date, especially as it relates to southern Britain, revealing exciting new patterns emerging in areas such as settlement, agriculture and ritual practices.
