Roman Canterbury: an update (online talk)

Professor Paul Bennett OBE has recently retired as Director of the Canterbury Archaeological Trust and is a visiting Professor at Canterbury Christ Church University’s Centre for Kent History and Heritage.

In this talk, he will present a review and update of Roman Canterbury including excavations that have produced evidence for cemeteries from the second to early fifth century. Readers may recall Paul’s part in the re-excavation of Folkestone Roman Villa as part of the ‘A Town Unearthed’ project which ran in the mid-2010s.
