Lunchtime Lecture – Memory and Landscape in Roman Kent
Fri 22nd Sept / 12.30 – The Collection
Although we think of the landscape as being a natural creation, human agency has always played a large role in shaping the world around us. In this talk, Dr Wallace will be exploring the how historic monuments, such as Bronze Age round barrows, were woven into new and meaningful symbolism in the countryside around Canterbury. The relationships between Romano-Celtic temples, Roman burials and Roman villas will be investigated with an eye to how people interpreted the monuments of the past all around them.
Dr Lacey Wallace is Lecturer in Roman History and Material Culture at the University of Lincoln.
This talk is part of our ongoing Lunchtime Lectures series. It will be held in the auditorium at The Collection, starting at 12.30 and lasting for approximately 30 minutes.
Tickets cost £3 per person, available from the museum reception desk.
