Roadside Settlements in Roman Britain and Beyond
Roadside settlements do not feature widely in the published literature on Roman Britain, which focuses predominantly on forts, villas and towns, yet there is much to explore about such settlements.
Questions include how they developed, who lived in them and the range of their functions. This conference will address many of the themes concerning roadside settlements, and is in part prompted by the current excavations into the roadside settlements at Bridge Farm, north of Lewes, and those at Alfoldean on Stane Street which linked London to Chichester.
A prestigious set of speakers, from Britain and the near Continent, has been selected to explore different aspects of these sites and to debate whether there are many or any commonalities between them.
