The next meeting of the Roman Archaeology Group will take place on the 27th of November, in the Alexander Lecture Theatre at UWA, starting 1:30. The programme for the day, which includes our AGM, is as follows:
1.30 – 2.10 pm
What’s new in Roman Britain
– David Kennedy
Although Britannia lasted less than four centuries and was far less-romanized than neighbouring provinces across the Channel, it regularly reveals impressive evidence from excavation, survey and chance finds, all of which are reported systematically every year.
2.10 – 2.30
2.30 – 3.00 pm
Tea Break (free tea and coffee)
3.00 – 4.00 pm
Arabio, Bocchus and Bogud: mapping the fortunes of local forces in Africa 47-41 BCE
– Martin Drum
Like many African leaders in the ancient world, Arabio, Bocchus and Bogud are known to us only through Greek and Roman sources. This talk will focus on their fortunes during Rome’s civil war period, and how their decisions impacted on the fate of Roman commanders in their part of the world.
