As part of its centenary celebrations in 2010, the Roman Society organised a number of conferences across the UK exploring the theme of AD410 and the "End of Roman Britain". This volume contains a selection of 16 papers delivered at these conferences, tackling the debate from different angles (historical, archaeological, literary) and setting out the current state of research. An introduction by Simon Esmonde Cleary serves to set the volume in the context of the study of Roman Britain over the last forty years, since the inception of the Society's journal, Britannia, and a conclusion by Martin Millett highlights some of the key issues raised in the volume, and points to possible ways forward for future studies.
