VOCES POPVLI presents highlights of LatinNow’s research into life and languages in the Roman West. What happens when the populations of the western provinces encounter Roman rule, Latin and literacy? What are the effects on local languages, identities and cultures? Our multilingual pop-up exhibition presents the story of the western provinces though a fascinating series of over 50 objects from the Roman West. Come and discuss local histories under Rome with our international team of experts, listen to talks, and try your hand at writing like a Roman, decoding military messages and creating your own curse tablet.
