From September 2020 – Roman Times and Archaeology

The Romans ruled Britannia for more than 350 years, leaving an indelible mark on our landscape. Town and countryside were transformed by innovations in comfort and culture – albeit shot through with a uniquely British twist – glimpses of which can still be seen at numerous splendid sites and museums in England, Wales and Scotland. ‘Roman Britain and Where to Find It’ provides the history of the best Roman villas, forts, walls and bathhouses, as well as the hidden gems which the uninitiated might pass by. It also explains how these remnants of the past fit into the bigger story, pointing out details which have their own tale to tell, connecting us with the people who lived here 2,000 years ago.
