This is a blog about Lincolnshire during the Roman period. Its aim is not to provide a comprehensive narrative of the subject, as that can be better gained through the many excellent books already written on the subject (see my links and resources page) or indeed through my own book on Roman Lincolnshire. Instead, I aim to report on new discoveries by community and professional archaeologists, highlight recent research and publications, and promote activities such as talks, tours, open days and exhibitions. I daresay there will also be some highlighting of Lincolnshire’s more famous finds and monuments too along the way.
I’m Antony Lee. I’m an archaeological museum curator and I also teach about Roman Britain as a Visiting Tutor on the Archaeology undergraduate course at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln. My main interests are in Romano-British ritual and religion, the development of urbanism and the expression of cultural identity through small finds. I have a passion for getting the general public interested in the real story of the Roman Lincolnshire and what was happening in their local area. I am an Associate of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists, an Associate of the Museums Association, and a Fellow of the Royal Numismatic Society.
If you want to get in touch about the blog or any aspects of Roman Lincolnshire, and especially if you’re aware of something amazing I haven’t covered, then contact me through twitter – @lidongni. You can download articles I’ve written about Roman Lincolnshire on my Academia page.
