Since at least Roman times, the land occupied by the modern day city of Coventry has been a cultural crossroads.
Its unique character is a manifestation of complex cultural interactions. The project, which involves Coventry University, the Herbert Gallery and Museum and the University of Warwick, will introduce local schools and the general public to cultural diversity in Roman and Medieval Coventry.
Through school workshops, public lectures and online resources (including teaching materials) the project will create a lasting legacy for Coventry City of Culture 2021 and beyond.
Dr Paul Grigsby (Classics and Ancient History, University of Warwick - pictured right) and Dr Daniel Anderson (Centre for Arts, Memory and Communities, Coventry University) are collaborating on this project.
