One of the things we try to do here at Enrichment is bring you news of lectures, seminars and other presentations where you can get to hear the latest findings from experts in the field. Next month, for example, sees the annual London Archaeologist’s lecture. This year it is presented by Dr Dominic Perring of University College London’s Institute of Archaeology, a leading specialist in the subject of Roman London.
The lecture, entitled “Making sense of Roman London: a new archaeological history 25 years on” builds on his earlier research. In the quarter century since he wrote Roman London, a huge amount of archaeology in and around London has led to a number of major discoveries which has changed our understanding of the city. Dr Perring has had to rethink how the Roman city developed and worked over a 400 year history and presents a fresh perspective on how the city was shaped.
This year’s London Archaeologist lecture on Roman London takes place on Thursday 14th May at 7pm in the Institute of Archaeology in Gordon Square, London WC1.
We are assured that London Archaeologist will host a drinks reception at 6.30 before the lecture and short AGM. And as usual it’s open to all and free of charge.
So, if you are a teacher based in London and want to know more about this really exciting subject, you should get along to this!
