Join Thomas Matthews Boehmer as he shines a light on the urban history of York (Eboracum), the most northerly provincial capital of the Roman Empire. By combining the results from new geophysics, recent excavations and older investigations, this talk demonstrates how new stories are constantly emerging from beneath the tarmacadam of one of Britain’s most touristed cities. This talk showcases some of the findings of Roman York Beneath the Streets, a 3-year research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
