The authors know their topic very well: Jenny Hall is Roman curator at the Museum of London. Her responsibility is early London history. Ralph Merrifield is the former deputy director of the same museum.
The book is divided into four chapters:
* Chapter 1 - The history of Roman London. This chapter has three sections: the beginning of London, London as the capital of Roman Britain, and the end of Roman London.
* Chapter 2 - The fabric of Roman London. This chapter has four sections: buildings of Roman London, London's port, London's fort, and London's walls.
* Chapter 3 - Life in Roman London. This chapter has three sections: Roman Londoners, London's trade with the empire, and religion in Roman London.
* Chapter 4 - A guide to Roman London. This chapter has three sections: the discovery of Roman London, Roman London today and a bibliography.
The book is fully illustrated with drawings, photos and maps from different periods. There are 123 small and large illustrations, almost all of them in colour. This is very good. On the cover of the new edition from the year 2000 there is a drawing which shows us Roman London seen from the air. This reconstruction by Peter Froste must be a new drawing, because the Roman amphitheatre is shown here, and this monument was not discovered until 1988. But inside the book the authors have used the same maps and the same drawings that were used in the first edition from 1986. This is unfortunate.Read more ›
