Roman Britain: History & Archaeology

8 June at 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm

A two session course FREE to new learners beginning at 5:30-8:30 on Thursday 8th June and continued the following week on Thursday 15th June at Fydell House, South Street, Boston, PE21 6HU.

Ever wondered what the Romans really did for us? Join Dr Ian Marshman from Heritage Lincolnshire in the historic surroundings of Fydell House to find out what life was really like in Roman Britain.

Special attention will be given to life in Roman Lincolnshire, at the new colonial city of Lincoln, in small towns like Sleaford, and in the countryside where the huge task of draining the Fens was also begun.

There will be interactive activities and the opportunity to handle real Roman artefacts uncovered locally by Heritage Lincolnshire’s archaeologists.

Throughout we will discuss the extent to which well-known Roman innovations, like central heating, roads, and aqueducts might have influenced the lives of ordinary people in this area.

Tea, coffee & cake provided.

Booking is essential. For an enrolment form please email htladmin@heritagelincolnshire.org or telephone 01529 461499.

This lifelong learning course is part of the Grow programme organised by the Lincolnshire County Council Community Learning service. We aim to attract new learners and courses are open to all aged 19 and over on 31 August 2016.
