"This major survey of the history and culture of Roman Britain spans the period from the first century B.C. to the fifth century A.D. It brings together specialists in the field to provide an overview of recent debates about Roman Britain, synthesizing the latest research in archaeology, literature, numismatics and history." "The contributors examine how historians' understanding of developments in political, economic, cultural and religious life in Roman Britain has changed over time. They also explain the evolution of the Roman British society over its 500-year existence."

Of particular interest to scholars will be the pioneering studies of the human population and animal resources of the island."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
