Corinium poetry

Some of our objects have poems written by Dan Simpson for our Food For Thought exhibition. The exhibition explores food in Roman Britain and the wider Roman world and is a partnership between the British Museum, Roman archaeologists from UK Universities and the Corinium Museum.

Dan Simpson is a spoken word poet and writer. He was Canterbury Laureate 2013-14, and is currently Poet in Residence at Canterbury’s Roman Museum.
