Derek Williams. Constable, London 1998 First Edition ISBN 0094779902 238 Illustrated Hardback This copy is in MINT condition in a MINT unclipped dustwrapper. This book examines the clash of cultures from the standpoint of four individuals whose curious fate it was to venture or be sent beyond the outer watchtowers of the Roman empire. They bore witness from the grassy steppe of Europe's south-eastern corner; from across the grim Carpathians, towering beyond the Danube, from the fearsome German forest and from beyond the Firth of Forth in the wilderness of northernmost Britain. Each portraits reveals differnet aspects of the Sarmation, German and Celtic peoples facing the empire's European frontiers. Together these four viewpoints provide a rich porttrait of the classical and iron age worlds, mutually uncomprehending yet strangely unable to do without each other.
