9780198217176: Roman Britain (Oxford History of England)

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?

About the Author:

Peter Salway, formerly a Fellow of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, and subsequently of All Souls College, Oxford, is an Emeritus Professor of the Open University and Chairman of the Oxford Archaeological Unit. His publications include The Oxford Illustrated History of Roman Britain, published by
OUP in 1993 (reissued in paperback by OUP in 1997 as A History of Roman Britain). He has served as a Member of Council of the National Trust (appointed by the Society of Antiquaries), and was one of the editors of The Remains of Distant Times: Archaeology and the National Trust (Boydell, 1996). He
has also published a substantial number of articles and reviews in learned journals and publications for the general reader, mostly on Roman Britain and Classical Antiquity in general, a few on medieval and later British archaeology and architectural history.

Review:


"An immensely impressive work. The judiciousness of tone and thoroughness of coverage inspire such confidence that it is hard to imagine that this will not be the standard account for the next generation or so."-- History


"Bound to become the standard general work on the subject. Recommended for all college and larger public libraries."-- Choice


"The most reliable survey to which we can now turn for the history of events in Britain from the invasions of Caesar to the fifth century."-- Virginia Quarterly Review
