Professor Michael Fulford, Department of Archaeology, gave this public lecture at the University of Reading on 14th October 2015.
The Roman invasion of Britain transformed the country's landscape forever. The major historical events that have taken place are being gradually uncovered to reveal some remarkable truths about the former Roman town. Underneath the Roman ruins, an Iron Age town was discovered to have preceded it.
Professor Mike Fulford discusses the transition of Silchester from Iron Age to Roman town, along with analysing many of the finds within the 18 years of the archaeological dig.
