New Light on Roman Yorkshire: work by students at the Department of Archaeology
Steve Roskams, Senior Lecturer, University of York

This talk will draw together the results of Departmental excavations over recent decades at Wharram Percy on the Wolds, the Malton fort, and Heslington East near York. In doing so, it aims to assess their implications for the impact of Rome in the region, in particular how imperial authority changed, and was itself changed by, local society.

The talk will be hosted on Zoom – contact us for further details
