Towns of Roman Britain Conference to be hosted at Reading

MITIGATION_EXCAV_CirencesteA day conference, aimed at academics, professional practitioners and others with an interest in all aspects of Romano-British urbanism, will focus on the contribution of commercial archaeology to the study of the major Romano-British towns (coloniae and civitas capitals) will take place at the University of Reading on 30 November 2013.

Discussion will look at historic towns of England which have seen significant commercial work, as opposed to the largely greenfield where this is not the case.

The papers will be published in a volume edited by Michael Fulford and Neil Holbrook in 2014.

The conference is organised in collaboration with English Heritage, Cotswold Archaeology and the Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies
