Presented in collaboration with the Roman Society and the Association for Roman Archaeology, this half-day symposium explores the general population of Roman Britain at home and abroad.

New archaeological research, notably covering rural settlements and burials, will shed light on the lives of millions of people who lived across the province, often those who are largely overlooked in general literature. There will also be a consideration of the evidence for Britons working and living elsewhere in the Roman Empire, reminding us that Britannia was truly an integrated province of the Empire.
