Scribbles on Walls (at Pompeii) - FSNASA

St. Augustine's Church, Richmond Road, Cambridge, CB4 3PS

Scribbling on walls is poorly thought of nowadays but was accepted in the Roman world – and many scribbles survive on Pompeiian walls. Dr Joyce Reynolds, retired Reader in Roman Historical Epigraphy at the University of Cambridge, speculates how these scribbles might put us in touch with the man or woman in the streets of Pompeii.

This is the first talk in the Autumn 2016 series of talks and recitals at St. Augustine's Church. All events are held at St Augustine’s Church and Community Centre in Richmond Road and are open to all. A small charge or retiring collection may be made where fees are requested by speakers or performers, or where there are unfunded expenses. A complimentary glass of wine or fruit juice and nibbles are served at most events.
The programme is supported by Richmond, Oxford and Windsor Roads Residents’ Associations, and put together by St Augustine’s Church.
