What can we learn about our ancestors from the artefacts they've left behind?: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/artefacts-and-the-study-of-life-in-roman-london
From jewellery and domestic utensils to weaponry and religious objects, artefacts provide a vivid connection to London's Roman past.
This lecture explores the ways in which archaeologists can analyse and interpret these objects, presenting some results of the latest research into the artefacts from excavations in the City of London and the new insights they provide into the lives of the first Londoners.
Part of the Mondays at One Archaeology Series.
