Monday 2nd August: Life in Roman Britain, which officially opened today, is BRLSI’s second exhibition of the year to accompany its Romans in Bath lecture programme. To mark the opening BRLSI members and their guests were invited to an early evening reception organised by the Chair of Trustees, Prof Julian Vincent, and his wife Dr Liz Vincent, also a BRLSI Trustee.
The exhibition tells the story of life, for Romans and locals alike, under a military dictatorship in the province of Britannia. You can read about it on poster boards, see artifacts from the period – and for children there’s a free mosaic-building activity. Life in Roman Britain is open from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday, until 9th October, and admission is free.
