Talk on “Life in Late Roman Britannia”

This talk looks at the life in Britain in the final 125 years of Roman rule and shows how the Empire had adapted to a changing world.

There is increasing archaeological evidence from this period of history locally, such as the Roman officer’s grave from Leicester and recent finds of 3rd/4th century buildings across the county

From farmers to villa-owners and soldiers to Emperors, it will cover aspects of everyday civilian life and the Roman army in Britannia during the 4th and 5th centuries A.D.

Duration: 1 hour
