Event details "How Roman Roads Changed Roman Lives"

The ancient Romans are renowned for their roads, bridges, and other travel infrastructure. While impressive as engineering feats, the people, goods, and ideas that traversed these paths fundamentally changed the places the roads connected. Using examples from his more than decade long research into travel infrastructure from across the Roman Empire, archaeologist Alan Kaiser tells the tales of four ancient individuals whose lives changed because they had access to a Roman road. A road brought security to an engineer in what is now Israel, profit to a fast-food restaurant owner in Pompeii, a new hairstyle and a means to assert her social status to matron in what is now Spain, and a route to salvation from death to a soldier stationed along Hadrianís Wall. The stories of these four people demonstrate that while the Romans made their roads, their roads made the Romans.
