“The Romans on the Medway”

6th October, 2016

Rochester Guildhall Museum, 17 High Street, Rochester, Kent ME1 1PY

The Romans had a significant impact on the area in which we live – including building the first bridge at Rochester – and now members of the public can find out more in a free lecture.

From the mid 1st to the mid 3rd century AD, much of the building material used across South East England was sourced from ragstone quarries in the Medway Valley. This involved an enormous industrial enterprise and fully-integrated transport infrastructure, of which the River Medway was a key part.

This free lecture, given by Kentish historian and author Simon Elliott, will explain more about this fascinating time in Medway’s history.

Refreshments from 6.30pm. Lecture starts promptly at 7pm.

To book: contact Sue O’Reilly by emailing sue@maxim-pr.co.uk or calling 01892 513033.
