The Life and Death of Roman Canterbury

1 day

From $240

Activity Level:


The story of Roman Canterbury, Durovernum Cantiacorum, is the story of a town that flourished for four centuries, but then collapsed as a functioning urban centre. Mass graves in its streets, in contravention of Roman law, suggest that something terrible happened to this once prosperous provincial town, possibly leading to its almost complete abandonment. And yet, life returned, and a new settlement was to rise from its ruins. Learn its story, and explore an archaeological mystery, with this study day on the Life and Death of Roman Canterbury. 

Tour highlights:

  • Handling session
