Tony King recently retired as Professor of Roman Archaeology at the University of Winchester, after a career spanning nearly 40 years, serving as Associate Dean, Director of Research, and not least, one of the primary founders of the archaeology programme. He took his PhD at the Institute of Archaeology, UCL, researching the chronology of Roman samian ware. At the same time, Tony developed research projects in animal bones and ancient Roman diet, Roman villas, and Romano-Celtic religion – the last two of these being the subject of tonight’s talk. He is currently President of the Association for Roman Archaeology and one of the principal investigators in an international research project on Roman inscriptions and Celtic god names. Locally, he runs the excavations for the New Forest History and Archaeology Group, and is one of the Trustees of the St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery.
