John-Smith-31-May

Military historian John Smith will inform and entertain during an Evening Lecture about Roman Military in Britain at Corinium Museum on Thursday 31 May, 7-8.30pm.

The lecture will explore archaeological evidence of Roman military equipment through re-enactment and how this translates into creating a picture of the Roman soldier.

John Smith has been involved in archaeology for 40 years and worked at two Roman Villas – Rockbourne, near Fordingbridge and Bignor in Sussex where he was Curator for 3 years. His special area is the Roman Army, particularly in the West Country. Thirty years ago he was one of the ‘diggers’ at Lake Farm, Wimborne – a Roman Legionary base.

The Corinium Museum tells the story of archaeology across the Cotswolds with an emphasis on discoveries from Roman Corinium. A vibrant temporary exhibition programme takes place throughout the year.
