The End of Roman Cirencester - Evening Lecture
Thursday 14/06/12 00:00 -
Cirencester was one of the greatest cities of Roman Britain. Did it end with a bang, a whimper or maybe just change into something else?
Thursday 14th June An evening lecture with Neil Holbrook Cirencester was one of the greatest cities of Roman Britain. Did it end with a bang, a whimper or maybe just change into something else? These are some of the biggest questions which relate not only to Cirencester, but Roman Britain as a whole. The talk will review the evidence for what was happening in Corinium in the last decades of the 4th century and opening ones of the 5th century. It will also look at the evidence for the earliest Anglo-Saxon activity. It will come to a view on the fate of the town, but the audience will be encouraged to say what they think as well. Neil Holbrook gained a first class degree in archaeology from Newcastle University in 1984 before starting work in professional archaeology. He is currently Chief Executive of Cotswold Archaeology. This lecture is a repeat of the lecture held on 26th January by popular demand. Tickets cost £5.65 or £5.00 for season ticket holders. All lectures are from 7 - 8.30pm (this includes time for questions). Finish times may vary.
