Shrines (Roman and Post-Roman)

Introductions to Heritage Assets

An introduction to Roman and post-Roman shrines.

Roman-period shrines and temples are relatively common in comparison with those for the preceding and succeeding periods, largely by virtue of the more substantial nature of many of the remains.

Descriptions of the asset type and its development as well as its associations and a brief chronology are included.
