This Symposium is aimed at looking at the general population of Roman Britain. New archaeological research, notably covering rural settlements and burials, will shed light on the lives of millions of people who lived across the province, often people who are largely overlooked in general literature about the province. There will also be a consideration of the evidence for Britons working and living elsewhere in the Roman Empire, reminding us that Britannia was truly an integrated province of the Empire.
