We are delighted to announce that Roman Finds Group committee member Dr Jörn Schuster will be offering a one-day Masterclass on Romano-British Brooches with former RFG committee members Dr Hella Eckhardt and Dr Emma Durham from the University of Reading.

Enamelled Romano-British brooch

This one-day event will enhance your skills in the description, identification and dating of Romano-British brooches. You will also learn about the way the PAS records brooches and the research potential of personal adornment for our understanding of Roman Britain.

The session will be run by Dr Jörn Schuster. Dr Hella Eckardt and Dr Emma Durham from the University of Reading will be on hand to help with the practical session, and Hella will give a short talk at the end of the day about research opportunities.
