Event description

Description

Roman Frontiers were complicated, even in the late first and second century. On the one hand wall and fences with watchtowers clearly indicating where Rome started, on the other hand, a Roman foreign policy that stretched a long way in front of it and Roman Emperors who were able to start a war for reasons sometimes unconnected with the situation on the Frontier.

So how did the Iron Age Societies surrounding the Roman emperor deal with their capricious neighbours? How did you manage to get the latest luxury for your demanding wives and grandchildren, while keeping the lives of your family out of the control of the Roman army? And could you? We are looking at what the historical sources, but in particular the archaeology tells us about life with Rome from the Iron Age perspective from Britain to the Black Sea.
