University of Reading 14th April 2015

Over the last three years the Department of Archaeology at the University of Reading and Cotswold Archaeology have been collaborating on a major project examining regional and chronological variation in Roman rural settlement through analysis of farm layouts, domestic architecture, agricultural practice and burial traditions. This will allow us to assess the integration of settlements in different parts of Britain with the Roman provincial economy and provide a new characterisation of the Romano-British countryside.

A free one day conference presenting initial results from the project will be held at Reading. For further information and to book go to
