Regionalised studies of Roman artefacts

Suggested period: ROMAN

Although Iron Age and early-medieval studies are strongly regionalised, Roman Britain tends to be seen as a continuum. Is this a real picture, or could we find evidence of regional variation to link the Iron Age to the early Anglo-Saxon period? The regional nature of brooches is well known, and Eckardt and Crummy (2003) have explored regionality in nail-cleaners, but other artefacts to do with personal adornment might be expected to show regional variation, and these might include bracelets, finger rings, cosmetic sets and mirrors. Undergraduate dissertations could choose a single artefact type and compare the dataset in two counties.
