Life and Diversity in Roman Britain

Women in Roman Britain

This section focuses on the evidence for women in Roman Britain, especially through examination of the wealth of monuments and inscriptions linked to women in the province. The second section, Women in Roman Britain: Diversity and Religion looks at the evidence not only of women in relation to religion, but focuses on the ethnic diversity of women in Roman Britain as seen through the evidence of religious inscriptions.

Diversity in Roman Britain

This section is divided in to two parts, one focusing on the evidence for diversity in Roman Britain, and one focusing on the diversity within the Roman army (with a little overlap between them). Evidence for Diversity will also discuss the arguments surrounding the 2016 debate over the black legionary (below) featured in a BBC video about Hadrian's Wall.
