Review quote

"This volume is an invaluable source of current research into marginal areas not often covered by other books on Roman Britain. The essays are well written, concise and take the reader straight to the heart of the matter. This volume is an excellent addition to the existing volumes in the Blackwell Companions to British History series." Reference Reviews "The authors are leading researchers and their individual statements all contain a wealth of information and interpretation which will make the Companion a useful resource."

This major survey of the history and culture of Roman Britain spans the period from the first century BC to the fifth century AD. 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. This "Companion" will be invaluable to all those interested in the history of the period and its interpretation. The pioneering studies of the human population and animal resources of the island will be of particular interest to scholars.
