During the Roman occupation of Britain, local craftsmen became skilled at reproducing images of Roman gods and rulers and using imported technologies. Yet recent discoveries reveal that British traditions survived. Archaeologist Susan Walker discusses new finds from Roman Britain and the persistence of local taste for color and pattern in jewelry and sculpture. Free; a ticket is required.
