How Northwest Britain became Roman


Ribchester Granaries (copyright:B.Hoffmann)

Birgitta Hoffmann

With the advent of the Flavian dynasty the expansion of Roman Britain moved forward at a huge pace. Within ten years the territory of the province had doubled with dozens of new forts springing up everywhere. This lecture is going to look at the results on the excavation in the Northwest in the last 25 years and how they have changed our view of the Roman arrival.

Special attention will be given to Chester, Ribchester and Carlisle.
