EDGE OF EMPIRE
Almost 2,000 years ago the mighty Roman Empire began its conquest of Britain. What is now Perthshire was part of the dynamic frontier zone of the region the Romans called ‘Caledonia’. The wealth of Roman sites across Perth & Kinross and the rich archaeology collection of Perth Museum & Art Gallery help to tell the exciting story of the interplay between Romans and Caledonians. Explore the evidence for yourself in ROMANS: Edge of Empire and find out what life was like for those living here on the edge of an ancient super-power which extended from the Atlantic seaboard to the Red Sea.
The exhibition, ROMANS: Edge of Empire runs from 9th October 2021 – 6th February 2022 at Perth Museum & Art Gallery. Entry is Free.
