This accessible reconstruction of life in Roman Britain begins by placing Britain firmly in an historical context, drawing parallels with other provinces of the Roman Empire and linking the indigenous Celtic people with the Roman invaders. Thereafter individual chapters cover administration and society; religion, belief and death; recreation and leisure; the domestic economy; food and drink; art and decoration; personal life style. Throughout, in text and illustration, the author makes use of the latest archaeological evidence.
