Curse tablets have often been thought of in terms of magical rituals that were outside the normal activities of Roman religion
Evening Lecture with Stuart McKie Thursday 26th June, 7 - 8.30pm Curse tablets have often been thought of in terms of magical rituals that were outside the normal activities of Roman religion. However, the evidence from Roman Britain, especially in the South West, points to a much more central role for these inscriptions. This talk will consider the contexts in which curse tablets were used, and aims to show how they influenced the way people viewed the world around them. Price: £5.65 per person or £5 for season-ticket holders. Booking essential. Contact details: Corinium Museum, Park Street, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 2BX T: 01285 655611
