4 AGM and Domestic Life at Druce Roman Villa - Talk by Lilian Ladle MBE

Three large Roman buildings at Druce Farm, near Puddletown, were occupied for five centuries. The families, servants and slaves who lived there left a great deal of information about their lives and lifestyles, which can be traced not only in the buildings but in the numerous finds resulting from excavations over the last four years. Lilian Ladle, Director of the Druce Farm Project, will interpret those discoveries.
