Product description

Review

"Wonderfully written and full of unexpected facts. Higgins brings Roman Britain into the present." (Richard Sennett)

"Beautifully crafted… The beauty of this book is not just in the elegant prose and the precision with which she skewers her myths. It is in the sympathy that she shows for the myth-makers, the men and woman who so very much wanted their very own Roman Britain." (Peter Stothard The Times)

"Mesmerising… Sophisticated and passionate. She personalizes the story in a diaristic, almost poetic tone…her prose reminds me at times of W. G. Sebald’s The Rings of Saturn…similarly haunted by a sense of a past slipping away." (Tim Whitmarsh Guardian)

"Smart and up-to-date, sensitive but hard-headed, impeccably researched but gloriously poetic. The layering of themes, moods and topics is staggering. There's nothing like quite it." (Tom Holland, author of 'Rubicon' and 'Persian Fire')

"Under Another Sky should be on every shelf in the UK. Part travelogue, part handbook and part revisionist history, it is a personal and vivid encounter with landscapes, artefacts and people… Beautifully considered and written." (Ruth Padel New Statesman)

Book Description

A journey around the archeological and cultural remains of Roman Britain by the award-winning author of It’s All Greek to Me.Shortlisted for the 2013 Samuel Johnson Prize and the Thwaites Wainwright Prize.
