Traces of Empire: Decoration and Design in Roman Britain
In 43 AD, Britain was invaded and became a province of the Roman Empire. However trade, population movement and political alliances meant links had been forged before the invasion.
This new display looks at the change in decoration and style during this period using significant archaeological finds from Museums Sheffield’s collections, each of which were discovered by chance by members of the public.
Traces of Empire has been funded through the Art Fund’s Treasure Plus scheme, supported by The Headley Trust.
Please note: this is a small display, not a complete exhibition.
