Department of Classics and Archaeology, School of Humanities,
the University of Nottingham
Natasha Harlow will be talking about her PhD research into portable artefacts from the Iron Age and Roman periods in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. Her recent doctoral project investigated the distributions of small personal belongings across this wide study area, using the numerous finds recorded by the Portable Antiquities Scheme database as well as from excavated sites.
This lecture will discuss the archaeological evidence for the Roman occupation, the Iceni client-kingdom and the famous Boudican rebellion and how the artefact record relates to the classical sources. It will also include a look at the importance of the West Norfolk area during this time period.
