Revealing Verulamium • The Archaeology of a Roman Town in Southern England


Revealing Verulamium • The Archaeology of a Roman Town in Southern England

The Roman City of Verulamium, which lies 25 miles north of London, England, was the third largest Roman city in the province of Britannia. Since 2013 a group of local volunteers has been conduncting a series of geophysical surveys on the site revealing a wealth of new information about the town. Dr. Kris Lockyear will share what is known about the town and what has been learned from the new surveys. 



Dr. Lockyear completed his masters at the University of Southhampton and his Ph.D. at the Institute of Archaeology at the University College London, where he joined the staff almost twenty years ago. For many years he ran the Noviodunum Archaeological Project in Romania which included a combination of geophysical, topographical and field surveys as well as excavation on four sites. Recently Kris has returned to England and has undertaken large scale geophysical surveys at Verulamium working with members of local archaeological societies, including the society he joined when he was eleven, and which he now directs. 

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be July 26th at 7 p.m. at the Ohio History Center, 800 East 17th Ave., Columbus, OH 4321
