The Roman Roads Research Association is proud to host two conferences to mark the 40th anniversary of the death of Ivan D. Margary, whose name, through his work “Roman Roads in Britain”, has become synonymous with the study of Roman roads. Perhaps his best known legacy is the numbering system he devised for Roman roads which is still in general use today. In all, his contribution to British archaeology has been profound, and, we feel, not given the national recognition which it deserves.
