The clarity of the information is excellent with an initial outline chapter giving the background to Roman Britain.
One minor complaint is about quality of the back-and-white photographs: some (most?) of these were present in the first edition which was published over 20 years ago and are looking very dated. I have thought that a modern guide book such as this would have had at least some in colour.
Having said that, this is a must-buy for anyone with an interest in one of the most important periods in British history.
If you want to get the best out of a visit to visible Roman remains anywhere in Britain and have only room in your rucksack for one book, then this is the one to take.
As someone interested in visiting Roman sites in Britain I would definitely recommend this book to others.

Somewhat dry and dated in style. But the information is brilliant. An updated version with better photography would be invaluable.Published 10 months ago by Kindle Customer Viv
