lecture and book signing at Wiltshire Museum, by Richard Henry
The end of Roman Britain has fascinated us for hundreds of years. Yet, what we know about the end of Roman Britain is built on small snippets from the surviving historical sources. In contrast, late Roman objects within the archaeological record are found in large numbers, these include brooches, buckles, spurs and coinage. As part of a doctoral research project this material has been considered systematically for the first time. What can material culture inform us about this complex yet crucial point in history or how the population of Britain dealt with complex social and political changes.
Richard Henry is a finds specialist who has worked for the Portable Antiquities Scheme as the Finds Liaison Officer for Wiltshire, for Historic England and as a curator for Southampton County Council. He has published books and articles on Roman archaeology, material culture, coinage and hoards. His most recent publication 'Roman Buckles & Brooches' looking at the end of Roman Britain and material culture was published in November 2022 and will be available at the lecture
