Charlotte Higgins talks to Jesse Norman

Under Another Sky: Journeys in Roman Britain

Virtual venue: Good Energy Stage

What has the idea of Roman Britain meant to those who came after Britain’s 400-year stint as a province of Rome, from the medieval mythographer-historian Geoffrey of Monmouth to Edward Elgar and WH Auden? What does Roman Britain mean to us now? How were its physical remains rediscovered and made sense of? How has it been reimagined, in story, in song and in verse?
