On Sunday 31 March the Roman Archaeology Group will have the pleasure of a lecture by one of the best-known experts on Roman Britain – Guy de la Bédoyère. As a prelude there will be four lectures establishing the circumstances in which many of the tribes of Britain were brought under Roman control and converted collectively into a new province – Britannia.
