Description

At the time of the Roman invasion of Britain, the site of London was an untamed, uninhabited forest and the conquering Roman fleet founded Londinium, as they named it, not as a garrison or a fortress but as a centre of government. John Morris' LONDINIUM is an authoritative account of London's first 600 years, from pre-Roman to Saxon times.show more

About John Morris

John Morris was the first professional historian to undertake a comprehensive assessment of the scattered evidence concerning the infant years of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, their influence on each other and their relationship with Europe. The Age of Arthur is now the classic account of the British Isles from the fourth to the seventh centuries. Senior Lecturer in Ancient History at University College, London, the late Dr John Morris founded the journal Past and Present in 1952 and was its first editor. He initiated a major new edition of the Doomsday Book and, with A.H.M. Jones, the Prosopography of the Later Roman Empire. His last book, Londinium: London in the Roman Empire, was published in 1982.show more
