A one day conference at the Devonshire Institute, Grassington BD23 5AA on Saturday 29th October 2016.
Recent large projects, many funded by developers, have highlighted a growing interest in the frontier lands on either side of Hadrian’s Wall, an area that can loosely be called
Central Britain. The focus of this geographical region is arguably centred on territory that came to be associated with the Brigantes, but a gulf still exists between the historical
and archaeological evidence. From landscape studies and excavation to scientific artefact analysis, a range of papers at this conference will consider the evidence for interaction
between native groups and Roman conquerors in and around this central zone.
