Good, dependable piece of archaeological writing which would have been perfectly adequate had the introduction not promised a lot more than I expected, i.e. the imaginative vision of someone who has walked the route. I got quite excited, and therefore felt let down as we followed the road. In the end, it's better treated as a work of reference than a fireside read.

I bought this book because I live close to the route of Akeman Street and wanted to know more about it. It did not disappoint me. Its written by an academic archaeologist and was at times a little too technical with a little too much assumption that I would understand some of the technical terms but then this added to my education. Overall it paints a detailed and scientifically accurate picture of life along the route of Akemen street linking the two Roman towns of Verulamium (St Albans) and Corinium (Cirencester) from before the Roman conquest into the late Roman period. The story is rooted in the economic and power politics of the times. Its added immeasurably to the pleasure I can find in my experience of the landscape on my walks and rambles. I loved the many maps and diagrams.
