Roman Roads Research Association event
The Roman Roads Research Association is holding two conferences this year in Portsmouth and in York, to mark the 40th anniversary of the death of Ivan D Margary, the celebrated Roman roads researcher and benefactor of archaeology, who was responsible amongst other things for saving the Fishbourne Roman Palace near Chichester.
The conferences will examine just how much our knowledge of the Roman road network in Britain has developed since Margary’s death in 1976, and look at how new technologies and approaches may move our understanding still further forward in the years to come.
We have brought together nationally and internationally renowned speakers for both events. Confirmed speakers for Portsmouth include Professor Mike Fulford (University of Reading), Dr. M. C. Bishop, John Poulter, Professor Anthony King (University of Winchester), David Millum & Rob Wallace (The Culver Project), Rob Entwistle, Dr. John Peterson (University of East Anglia), David Staveley, Bryn Gethin (Warwickshire Archaeology), Mike Haken (RRRA).
