About this course

Tonbridge - History - Short course - Defending Roman Britannia - Hadrian's Wall and the Saxon Shore Forts.
The course will cover the theory and practice of establishing and then defending the northern frontier of the Roman Empire from AD 80 onwards. It will look at the evolution of defence strategies for the southern and eastern coasts of Britannia by means of navies and then fixed fortifications, the remains of which can be visited today. Archaeological evidence and contemporary written sources will be used to explore what can learned about the lives of the people who lived in and around these structures, the threats they faced and how they coped with everyday living conditions on the edge of the Roman Empire.
