From the major Colonia at Lincoln, featuring some of the most significant remains to be seen anywhere in Britain, to sweeping agricultural landscapes filled with vibrant rural settlements, nationally important ceramic and salt industries and intriguing finds assemblages from both professional and amateur archaeology, Lincolnshire encompasses all that Romano-British archaeology has to offer. Lincolnshire’s complex and fascinating archaeological record is constantly evolving our understanding of life in the county in the Roman period.

Each object and site provides a window into wider issues such as cultural identity and the impact of Rome on everyday people in the countryside, combining to form an overview of life in Lincolnshire almost 2,000 years ago, as told through its most fascinating physical remains.
