Book Description

Aug 2002
The vast empire created by the Romans remains one of the outstanding achievements of history. This text assesses the impact of the invasion of AD 43 on Iron-Age Britain and surveys the effect of Roman culture on this remote province up to and beyond the end of the military occupation. The process of Romanisation in town and country, in the arts, architecture and religion, is not, however, viewed in isolation, but in terms of Britain's place in the empire as a whole. This study, written by authors with an experience of the Romano-British collections of The British Museum, provides a synthesis of this important period.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good synthesis 21 April 2009
This book, well informed, very clear and useful is, in my opinion, the best introduction to the history and archaeology of the roman Britannia.

3.0 out of 5 stars academic 14 Mar 2012
This is a very scholarly and fascinating series of studies of different aspects of life in England during the Roman occupation.
What it lacks is a narrative - an overall account of the development of life that could have been achieved by bringing the aspects together
