An Introduction to Roman Britain course for this winter

During the 2017/18 academic year, Dr David Rudling FSA will be teaching in Sussex two similar introductory classes on Roman Britain. Starting in the mid 1st century BC and ending in the 5th century AD we will explore over two terms (20 weeks) the archaeology and history of Roman Britain. Topics to be examined will include: the invasions of Caesar and Claudius, the army, client kingdoms, ‘Romanization’ / ‘Becoming Roman’, towns, roads, villas, farmsteads, trade, industry, religion and burial, and ‘The End’ of Roman Britain. both courses will involve illustrated lectures, practical handling sessions of Roman-period artefacts, and visits to museums and archaeological sites in Sussex (and perhaps beyond).
