Although 376 pages sounds like a lot of space, it covers the whole gamut of practical life: commerce p.20, travel p. 46, industry p.68, agriculture p.89, weaponry p. 114, writing p. 133, domestic life p. 153, heating and lighting p. 180, personal ornament p. 194, recreation p.219, medicine and hygiene p. 243, religion p. 269, funerary contexts p.293, bibliography p.314, index p.349, each chapter by a different author. Whole books have been written about each of these topics, so only the most basic information is given. It has 55 black and white photos and 25 drawings, rarely full page. On the plus side, it uses correct, precise terminology in many places, not just general terms so it is a good tool for expanding your vocabulary. It appears to be easy enough to read.

This is a standard recommendation for students of Roman Britain seeking information about artefacts and their interpretation. Each of the chapters covers a separate topic but what they have in common is seeking to read the available evidence in a manner that throws light on social customs and developments. From a straightforward "interest" angle, some are more successful than others. However, any reservations about the book are more about the absence of any overarching analysis that would build on the insights contained in each of the parts. Informative, then, but not (in my view) in any way inspirational.
