The Roman period marks the point at which the past of the British Isles starts to be approachable through substantial written sources as well as archaeology. Recent archaeological and documentary discoveries of major importance - and advances in the ways in which this evidence is analysed -make this an appropriate time to reconsider Roman Britain.This book distils the mass of new knowledge, setting the principal themes within a chronological framework. The team of contributing authors, which includes some of those most closely involved in discovery and analysis, applies both imagination and common sense to their subject. This book provides alively picture of current knowledge and opinion about the Roman era in the history of the British Isles at this particularly exciting point in the evolution of the subject.
Peter Salway, All Souls College, Oxford, Emeritus Professor, The Open University. He is author of 'A History of Roman Britain' (OUP, 1997), 'The Oxford History of England: Roman Britain' (OUP, 1990), and 'The Oxford Illustrated History of Roman Britain' (OUP, 1993).
