Professor Simon Keay of the British School at Rome and University of Southampton will reveal exciting new discoveries which reveal more about this remarkable site.

Its pivotal role in the Roman economy has been made ever clearer by the sequence of excavations at the site.  The results of the latest season, which make a major contribution to our understanding of the way that Roman trade, commerce and defence worked, will be presented in this lecture.
