Britain in the Roman World (CLA3116)

15 credits

This module provides an in-depth exploration of the early history and archaeology of Britain in the Roman empire (c. 100 BC – AD 200), from its perception as an outlandish place on the edge of the known world to its later conquest, colonization and integration. Going beyond modern misconceptions of homogenous Romans and Natives, the module will explore how the various cultures and communities in Britain adapted and responded to life within the global culture and society of the Roman empire. Particular emphasis is placed on material culture as a source for answering political, historical and social questions.
