Roman archaeology has often been seen as one of the more traditional sub-fields in the discipline, rooted in visions of an imperial past out-of-step with the 21st century. In this lecture, the critical developments in the field over the last thirty years will be reviewed through the lens of frontier archaeology, showing how new insights into border processes can, in fact, inform very contemporary debates about identities, boundaries, and social transformation in the coming decades. In a world still strongly shaped by the legacies of empire, Roman archaeology has much to offer to the understanding of these issues.
The lecture will be followed by a wine reception.
