Britain may have been on the very edge of the Roman Empire, but it still provides remarkable written evidence for the everyday lives of Roman soldiers and their families on Hadrian's Wall, merchants and craftspeople in London, slaves and freedmen from all over the Empire and many more. Join Dr Anna Judson as she explores the wide range of written documents that survive - from gravestones to letters, and birthday party invitations to curses - and what they can tell us about life in Roman Britain.

Free. For ages 15+. Pre-book.
