Thanks chiefly to the excavators, we now know a great deal more about Roman Britain than was being taught in schools a generation ago: and the more we learn, tho more we admire the civilization that the Romans gave our country sixteen hundred years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Quennell will talk of the Roman roads, the public buildings, houses and furniture, the churches and temples and amphitheatres and some of the social customs of Roman Britain.
