Talk: Durotriges - BNSS

Event date: 6th July 2021 at: 7.30pm via Zoom

Speaker: Dr. Miles Russell (Bournemouth University)

The idea that an invading Roman army brought about the end of hillforts in south \ west Britain in AD 43 in a single, violent campaign, conquering the local Iron Age tribes and imposing a new administrative order, is one of the most powerful narratives in British archaeology. Recent discoveries by students and staff of Bournemouth University, however, have prompted a re-evaluation of the archaeological evidence, suggesting that perhaps everything we thought we knew about this period is fundamentally wrong.
