What the Iceni did next – new evidence from Caistor Roman town
A talk by Professor Will Bowden
Thursday 16 March, 7.30pm
Rattray Lecture Theatre, University of Leicester
FREE, booking essential via Eventbrite via https://What-the-Iceni-did-next.eventbrite.co.uk
This talk will describe recent results from the long-running excavations at Caistor St. Edmund (ancient Venta Icenorum) in Norfolk, carried out by Caistor Roman Project and the University of Nottingham.
In particular, it will focus on the evidence from the recent excavations of the town’s huge extra-mural temple complex, which suggest that the idea that the Iceni were impoverished after the Boudican revolt needs to be reassessed.
