Alumni and guests are invited to join the Oxford and Cambridge Club of Geneva for a dinner event with guest speaker Professor Martin Millett. The talk is titled: A Remote Sensing Revolution in Roman Archaeology.

In the past few years the application of remote sensing technology has generated a wealth of new evidence that is changing our understanding of the Roman world. Methods of aerial and terrestrial remote sensing have increasingly been applied in archaeology adding both to knowledge of previously known sites and the discovery of hitherto undiscovered landscapes. This talk will present two contrasting studies to illustrate the potential of these methods: one of the rural landscape in northern England, the other of urban centres in Central Italy.

Professor Martin Millett is Emeritus Professor of Classical Archaeology at University of Cambridge.
