Arbeia Society 26th Annual Conference 2017

 

18th November, 10.00 - 5.00

 

PEACE AND WAR ON THE ROMAN NORTHERN FRONTIERS

 

 

 

This year’s conference looks at warfare on the Roman northern frontiers of Britain and its aftermath. Particular highlights of the day are two recent and on-going fieldwork projects. Rescue excavations at Scotch Corner have explored an extensive settlement that is associated with the very earliest stage in the Roman conquest and political settlement of Brigantian territory.  Intensive investigations of the Roman siege works at Burnswark have had entirely unexpected results, illustrating the technical sophistication of the weaponry that was concentrated against this Iron Age hill fort. Other contributions provide a commentary on the political, military and logistical background to warfare in Roman Britain, and the day finishes with some reflections drawing on modern military theory.
