The Frontiers of the Roman Empire
To mark the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 North of England Civic Trust (NECT), the UK Co-ordinator, will organise an exhibition at the 12 Star Gallery from 18 July – 10 August 2018.
The Frontiers of the Roman Empire is an historical zone that spans Europe and 1,900 years of history. Designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, the map of these sites now recognises the significance of how an era of profound civilisation shaped the Europe we know today.
The North of England Civic Trust and the European Commission invites participants to see how the Frontier has been shaped over the last two millennia at this collaborative exhibition.
Uniquely embodying all that 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage represents in shaping a common European heritage, and about the common values expressed through contemporary European culture.
The United Kingdom is proud to present this as a huge contribution towards the years festivities, as it is cultural heritage at the leading edge: “what joins us is greater than what divides us”.
