Description
This lavishly illustrated book presents the most authoritative history of Roman Britain ever published for the general reader. Written by an established expert in the field, the narrative starts before the invasions of Julius Caesar and finishes in the fifth century AD with the end of Romanrule and the subsequent collapse of society in Britain. Based on the latest research, the book examines every aspect of life in Roman Britain, from the first Roman contacts, through the conquest, the Imperial crisis and recovery, to Britain and the world in the fifth century. Separate thematicchapters on the economy, religion and society, and the historical geography of town and country are all seen in the context of the wider Roman world.Over 350 illustrations complement the broad-ranging text. In addition to showing classic examples of Romano-British archaeology, there are a number of illustrations of spectacular recent discoveries, which have never previously been published.
