Visitor Centre (upstairs)

Please note this session is upstairs and no lift is available.

Lindsay Allason-Jones is an archaeologist and Visiting Fellow at Newcastle University. Her research into Roman artefacts and Roman women led to Michael O’Mara asking her to write a novel about a year in the life of a typical family in Roman York. Roman Woman: Everyday Life in Hadrian’s Britain was first published in 2000 and is being reissued in July 2019.

Lindsay is in conversation with Professor Jim Crow, Professor of Classical Archaeology, Edinburgh University.

Jim Crow teaches Roman and Byzantine archaeology at the University of Edinburgh. He previously taught at Newcastle and was a colleague of Lindsay’s for many years. He excavated sections of the Roman Wall near Castle Nick and his publications include the English Heritage guidebook to Housesteads.
