The series presents new and interesting work on all aspects of Roman archaeology - art, architecture, economy, settlement, technology, etc. The audience is staff, postdocs, graduate students, and others interested in Roman archaeology.

The seminar was established in 2002 to provide a focus for the research community in Roman archaeology which was then nascent and has grown substantially since. It has established itself as a very popular seminar with a core loyal following, swelled by masters and DPhil students. It aims to expose students and staff to a range of exciting and innovative approaches in Roman archaeology, and to provide a venue for visiting speakers as well as local faculty, and also the opportunity for DPhil students to present papers in an amicably critical setting.
