While not the easiest book to read, this is a reasonably comprehensive history of the Romans in Britain. ( )

A good if long and dare I say it exhausting book to read. Good to read if you like history and are interested in the time period, which I am, but after finishing it I know why I much prefer novels. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 019821717X, Hardcover)

Reissued in new covers, this is the first volume in the "Oxford History of England". It draws on literary sources and advances in archaeology, charting life in Roman Britain from the first Roman invasion under Julius Caesar to the final collapse of the Roman Empire in the west. It examines question such as: how much did the Britons adopt the Roman way of life during their long history as Roman provincials?; was Britain an integral part of the Roman Empire?; and what was its own distictive character?
