To complement David Bird’s “ Reading Roman Inscriptions” workshop on 2 September, there will be a visit to the British Museum. Dirk Booms, Curator in the Department of Greece and Rome, will walk us round 2 galleries for about an hour to help us appreciate and translate the inscriptions there. He will explain the abbreviations and the different facts that can be interpreted from inscriptions in general.
