The Roman period in Scotland has long been a subject of fascination to scholars and the public alike. This was a crucial period of Scottish history which continues to puzzle and intrigue us. What was life like on the edge of the Roman empire? How did the Roman frontier operate, and what impact did the presence or proximity of the legions have on local societies? This lecture will look at recent discoveries and new approaches to these age-old problems.
Dr Fraser Hunter is Iron Age and Roman curator at the National Museum. The question of the impact of Rome is one of his key research interests, and he has conducted excavations and other research projects to investigate the problem.
Members of the Public are welcome to attend
