Roman Military Explored at Corinium Museum Evening Lecture

Events at Corinium Museum

Military historian John Smith will inform and entertain during an Evening Lecture about Roman Military in Britain at Corinium Museum on Thursday 31 May, 7-8.30pm.
The lecture will explore archaeological evidence of Roman military equipment through re-enactment and how this translates into creating a picture of the Roman soldier.
John Smith has been involved in archaeology for 40 years and worked at two Roman Villas - Rockbourne, near Fordingbridge and Bignor in Sussex where he was Curator for 3 years. His special area is the Roman Army, particularly in the West Country. Thirty years ago he was one of the 'diggers' at Lake Farm, Wimborne - a Roman Legionary base.
The Corinium Museum tells the story of archaeology across the Cotswolds with an emphasis on discoveries from Roman Corinium. A vibrant temporary exhibition programme takes place throughout the year.
For more information or to book for this lecture, please contact the Corinium Museum on 01285 655611 or go visit the website (see link below).
