Soldier and Civilian in Roman Wales
*Some of our courses are available online via Zoom sessions
Contact between Rome and Wales began in the mid-first century AD and was marked by open warfare. By the end of the century, Wales was dotted with Roman forts and military installations and crisscrossed by roads, while at the same time, urban centres were beginning to develop and well-appointed townhouses and villas constructed. In this series of richly illustrated lectures, we shall examine the development of Roman Wales from conquest to the departure of the legions in the fourth century, looking at the many aspects of everyday life of both soldiers and civilians and drawing on literary and archaeological evidence not just from Wales, but from across the Roman Empire. The extent to which the peoples of Wales adopted or rejected Roman ways is an interesting question that we shall be considering as we proceed.
