Travelling with the Romans: Lancashire’s Roman Roads (ONLINE EVENT)
Sep 16 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

This talk will be delivered as a live Zoom session by David Ratledge as part of Heritage Open Days 2020.

The last few years have seen a transformation in our understanding of Lancashire’s Roman road network as a consequence of Lidar data becoming freely available.

The use of Lidar data (basically high precision height data) to reveal the course of Roman roads has been a great success throughout the country. Imagery derived from this data is often able to show clearly the surviving remains of the road agger, terraces, side ditches and cuttings, often where they cannot be identified on the ground through traditional fieldwork. This has resulted in almost every road in Lancashire being located with high confidence.

A former civil engineer, David worked predominantly in the design and construction of roads and bridges for over 40 years and also headed Lancashire County Council’s GIS unit. Since his retirement he has been able to devote his time to tracking down lost Roman roads in Lancashire, Cumbria, Cheshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.

Cost: Free

Booking essential: Please book via Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/travelling-with-the-romans-lancashires-roman-roads-tickets-117227525685
