History and Archaeology of Roman Britain


Roman Britain provides an excellent case study of the operation of Roman imperialism and its impact on local societies. In this course, we will pursue both historical and thematic perspectives on the cultural changes that occurred in the province through several hundred years of Roman influence and occupation.

Topics covered include the military and social impact of the Roman army, the development of Romano-British towns, the mixing of religious ideas in provincial society, approaches to studying Roman material culture, and the interaction between archaeological and historical sources.
