The Rural Settlement of Roman England: from regional perspectives to national synthesis

University of Reading 14th April 2015

Over the last three years the Department of Archaeology at the University of Reading and Cotswold Archaeology have been collaborating on a major project examining regional and chronological variation in Roman rural settlement through analysis of farm layouts, domestic architecture, agricultural practice and burial traditions.

A free one day conference presenting initial results from the project will be held at Reading. For further information and to book go to
