The course will include the results of new research and fieldwork since 2000 at the Roman forts and settlement at Maryport, Ribchester, Chester, Burscough and Manchester, and Castleshaw and will look at the rural landscape (farms such as Poulton, field systems and agricultural specialisation), Roman death and burial, and the Vindolanda tablets which mention many North West sites.
