Mateusz Fafinski M.A.
My research examines the problem of continuity in the context of Roman infrastructure in Britain by employing a two sided approach: a synthesis of the fate of Roman infrastructure in the whole of Britain and a case study of the area occupied later by the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of Deira and Bernicia, north of Humber. The continuity of infrastructure is assessed from three major focal points: the legal status, the usage and the role of the Church. Thanks to that I wish to take part in the general discussion about continuity after the Roman withdrawal at the beginning of the 5th century.
