Salve Brendan!

I like the programme for both days. I'm looking forward to paper 12.

That paper title makes me feel vaguely ill :?
But yes, I guess for the more Roman focused both days have a lot to offer

Don't worry lads, I'd say paper 12 is fairly accessible. If I'm right, it's about studying people's teeth to see where they grew up. You can identify Roman skulls in Britain that may have grown up in Germany, Morocco or indeed Rome.

Sounds interesting actually...could answer whether Romans or other 'not from around here' types were here in any significant numbers then

Exacty. It just needs a snazzier title. Any suggestions?

Something to do with the mineral record left in the teeth by eating local food and drinking local water. Or something like that
