A historian in the 1930s said: "In the abundance and variety of its Roman antiquities, Yorkshire stands second to no other county”.
Finds recorded over the last 15 years by the Portable Antiquities Scheme certainly seem to support this view.
Ranging from evidence of military activity and the cult of Mithras, to the personal grooming habits of the Romans, and coin hoards and monumental statues, this talk will highlight some of the most interesting Roman finds from Yorkshire that have been recorded by the Portable Antiquities Scheme, and use them to illustrate a brief history of the Roman period in Yorkshire.
