Event description
The Roman road network around Colchester, is it as old as the Town?

About this event

  • Brief Summary

Colchester is well known as the oldest recorded "town" in Great Britain, so it seems reasonable to assume that the Roman road network around the town must also be one of the oldest in the country. But is that really the case, and if so, where is the proof?

The Colchester Archaeological Group was founded over 60 years ago, and Geoff Lunn is currently chair of their Roman Roads Study Group. In recent years the group has been using emerging technologies such as geophysics, Lidar, Google Earth and thermal imagery to further understand this often puzzling network of roads. This seminar presents an overview of the current state of that work, and as is so often the case in archaeology, seemingly more questions than answers.

This presentation will take place via Zoom, and will be followed by a Q&A session. Attendees will receive a link by email after registration, and on the day of the talk. The meeting room will open to the public at 7:15pm with the talk starting at 7:30pm.
