Course detail: OSH145 - Roman Britain: An Ancient Story in a New Light
Roman Britain was generally considered to be an obscure imperial province, but recent excavations in London and throughout Britain have brought the period into a new light. The everyday life of civilians and military has been revealed by modern technology applied to DNA, isotopes, and the transcription of newly discovered texts. In this class, we will follow the Roman invasion with explorations in Londinium, countryside villas and the wild northern frontier. The story will conclude with the departure of the legions and the merge of Romano-Britain with Arthurian mythology.
