Feel the past firsthand…

After a short introductory lecture about the history of the local Roman pottery industry and techniques, you’ll get the chance to handle ancient Roman material that originated from this area.

The workshop will be led by Dr Stephen Upex – arguably the pre-eminent authority on the Romans in the East of England! Best known locally for his extensive work at Durobrivae (as the fort was known in Roman times), he lectures widely in the UK and tutors at the University of Cambridge. He has written on a wide variety of topics and will shortly be publishing a report on the Roman landscape and settlement at Ferry Meadows.

To book, call Peterborough Museum on 01733 864 663, or email museum@vivacity-peterborough.com
