This review is from: UnRoman Britain: Exposing the Great Myth of Britannia (Hardcover)
This is a great book with very interesting insights. Obviously history shows that Britain wasn't entirely conquered by the Romans and that 'unconquering' took them 400 years. If you have an interest in Roman Britain (or not as the book suggests) this will make a great addition to your collection! Well worth the money.
It covers all aspects of Britain throughout the Roman period from Caesars attempts to invade to the invasion of AD43. It also gives examples of which areas of the country took on Roman life and areas that didn't and certain tribal areas defiance to the worlds largest empire.
It also shows that Britain wasn't the backward civilisation that most believed it to be before the arrival of the Romans. An excellent book and a great addition to any collection of books of the era!
