A lecture ‘Meanwhile, in Britain…’: women under the Roman Empire, by Lindsay Allason-Jones, Society of Antiquaries of Newcastle upon Tyne, will take place on Friday, 5 July from 13.15 until 14.15 in the BP Lecture Theatre at the British Museum.
 
In AD 79 Britain was a new province of the Roman Empire and a very different place to mainland Italy. In this lecture, Lindsay Allason-Jones, considers the changes that the invasion made on southern Britain and how these changes affected the lives of the women of Britannia.
