Roman Britain

University of California Press, 1 ian. 1992 - 239 pagini
Relying on the most recent archaeological evidence as well as on ancient artifacts, T.W. Potter and Catherine Johns assess the impact of the Roman invasion of A.D. 43 to provide a complete picture of Roman Britain. In the context of Britain's place in the empire as a whole, they survey the effect of Romanization in town and country, in the arts, architecture, and religion.
The authors, both curators of the Romano-British collection of the British Museum, have an unrivalled, day-to-day familiarity with the material evidence, including such notable discoveries as the Thetford and Snettisham treasures, the Vindolanda tablets, and the unique building facade from Meonstoke, which only came to light in 1989. The rich silverware, jewelry, and mosaics, as well as more utilitarian objects are discussed in detail.
Providing the general reader with an up-to-date synthesis of this important period, the book also offers new contributions to long-standing problems that will interest scholars. Like the other volumes in this series, it contains a comprehensive bibliography and gazeteer for those planning to visit Romano-British sites.
