The Roman period is where the past of the British Isles is first revealed through substantial written sources as well as archaeology. This book distils archaeological and documentary discoveries and advances about the Roman Era. A number of key themes are discussed within a chronological framework. The book features chapters contributed by a team of scholars amongst those most closely involved with discovery and analysis. This book is intended for undergraduates studying Roman Britain and Roman civilization, and the general reader interested in the history and archaeology of this period.
