Readable and engaging,
This review is from: Roman Britain: A New History (Paperback)
Well written, nicely illustrated and I liked the thematic organisation of material into chapters. I think one of the things I especially liked (and this may say more about my prior knowledge of the Romans in Britain) is that it gave a real sense of how LONG the Roman occupation lasted and that things changed quite a lot over time.
As a non-specialist I'm unable to comment on how accurate and authoritative the text is, but I liked the way it acknowledged that there are differences of opinion and that our understanding of the history of Roman Britain and interpretation of artefacts has changed over time.
