For the people who lived in Britain during the period of Roman rule, there are few written records. The scarcity of written information means that most evidence available for the people, comes from the physical remains of the people themselves. Mortuary archaeology involves not only the physical remains of these people but the manner and place of their burial, grave goods and epigraphic evidence.

Dr Pam Lynch has a fascination for all eras of UK history and archaeology, has taken part in an archaeological dig on a Roman Palace site in the south of England and for her PhD thesis she studied Romano-British burials. She is intrigued by the light that can be shed on an ancient civilisation through an examination of its burial practices.

Come along and be captivated by the archaeological discoveries, their interpretation and the extent to which this ancient population can be understood.

Please note the earlier time of 4.30pm.

Cost $5.00. Book online. Pay at the door, due to the implications of COVID-19, City of Joondalup Libraries request that all attendees pay with either EFTPOS or exact money.
