A talk about archaeological evidence, graffiti and personalised artefacts from Roman Britain will take place in Wisbech.
‘The People of Roman Britain - Introducing the Romano-British’ will look at real personalities who fleshed out an archaeological record.
From the poet brick layer to the incompetent potter - these are the real people of Roman Britain, in their own words.
Paddy Lambert, a project officer at Oxford Acheaolodgy East will speak at the event held by Fenland Archaeological Society.
Mr Lambert specialises in the history and material culture of the Roman world, with dedicated interests in Roman inscriptions and religion.
