Droughts can cause many problems but for archaeologists the extremely dry summer of 2018 was full of new discoveries. A new study of Royal Commission aerial discoveries from the widespread drought of 2018 in Wales has just been published in the journal Britannia. Written by Royal Commission Senior Aerial Investigator Dr Toby Driver, together with Roman experts Professor Barry Burnham and Dr Jeffrey L. Davies, the study sheds new light on what we understand about the military conquest of Wales by Roman troops in the first century AD, and its subsequent Roman settlement. This blog introduces the this fascinating research and includes a link to access the full article in Britannia.
