Lunchtime Lecture - Sex, Symbol and Supernatural: Roman Phallic Carvings in Lincolnshire

Join Adam Parker of The Open University for an archaeological lunchtime lecture.

Roman phallic imagery has been intriguing people for centuries, variously viewed as being either obscene or comical; placed proudly on public display or locked away in special rooms for the eyes of certain visitors only. Tour guides at Pompeii famously, and erroneously, tell tourists that phallic imagery on buildings and pavements points the way to brothels. In this lecture, Adam Parker will explore the phenomenon of Roman phallic imagery in Britain using examples from Lincolnshire, placing it into the wider context of Roman ritual and superstition.

Adam Parker is Assistant Curator of Archaeology at the Yorkshire Museum and currently studying for his PhD with the Open University, investigating Magic in Roman Britain.

This talk is part of our ongoing Lunchtime Lectures series. It will be held in the auditorium at The Collection, starting at 12.30 and lasting for approximately 30 minutes.
