NEW CONTENT-The Romans and Their Emperors
|Start||Wednesday 21st September 2022|
|Time||10:30 - 12:30|
|Tutor||Dr David Rudling|
As with the similar course last year, this 10-week course will consider various (different) aspects of Roman history and culture, and introduce participants to some of the famous emperors such as Augustus, Nero, Diocletian and Constantine the Great. Although we will use some historical sources, the emphasis will be on the archaeological record including coins, statues, artefacts, and the remains of buildings, monuments, cities, roads, etc. We will look at the city of Rome itself, other cities, the provinces, the army, religion, industry and trade, and art and architecture.
Half term is 24th-28th October.
