Event Details

Within a decade of the Roman invasion of Britain in AD 43 Gloucester had been selected as a key location from which to launch campaigns against the hostile tribes of South Wales. Gloucester therefore lay on the western frontier of the new province, a crucial and dangerous location. Drawing on recent archaeological discoveries, Time Team expert and head of Cotswold Archaeology Neil Holbrook examines why Gloucester was chosen as a legionary base, explores the military infrastructure created, and explains how the campaigns and ultimate conquest were accomplished. 

Join him as he tells the extraordinary story of the Roman Army’s march westward, meet some of the very first citizens of the city and find out how they lived.
