Ford Lectures 2022 - Why Roman Britain? Why Material Culture? Why Dogs?

Event speakers
Professor Robin Fleming (Boston College)
21 January 2022 17:00
All are welcome

Aside from a few notable exceptions, the British history written by historians begins not with the Roman period, but with the early Middle Ages.  This lecture poses a series of problems and questions in order to argue that this is a period with which historians should engage, and it suggests methods we might use to write not just the period’s political history, but its social and cultural history as well, by embracing Roman Britain’s more-than-human past. 

This lecture will take place online. Please see the History Faculty website for further information.
