Roman Roads in Britain, by PADDY LAMBERT, Oxford Archaeology East.  Thursday 24th October 2019 at 8pm in MAIN HALL, LISTON HALL, MARLOW SL7 1DD

The Roman road network in Britain is the epitome of Roman civilisation, bringing trade and opening Britain to an empire that stretched from the cold winds of Scotland to the decadence of the orient.  They remain one of the most enduring of archaeological legacies. Yet, they are still shrouded in myth and misconception.

The real story of the roads and where they eventually lead us is more surprising and much more interesting.

It’s not ‘what the Romans did for us’ – it’s how they did it.
