9780140148220: An Imperial Possession: Britain in the Roman Empire, 54 BC - AD 409 (The Penguin History of Britain)

Part of the Penguin History of Britain series, An Imperial Possession is the first major narrative history of Roman Britain for a generation. David Mattingly draws on a wealth of new findings and knowledge to cut through the myths and misunderstandings that so commonly surround our beliefs about this period. From the rebellious chiefs and druids who led native British resistance, to the experiences of the Roman military leaders in this remote, dangerous outpost of Europe, this book explores the reality of life in occupied Britain within the context of the shifting fortunes of the Roman Empire.

Review:

`Exemplary ... from brothel slaves to procurators, then, from the very lowest to the highest, all are here in a magnificent work' -- Spectator

`If you have any interest in Roman Britain, you must buy it' -- British Archaeology

`Mattingly shows ... just how interesting life could be on the outer fringes of the Roman Empire' -- Sunday Telegraph

`What the Romans did to us ... They came, they saw and they definitely conquered. David Mattingly has taken a refreshing look at what that meant for the Britons' -- The Times

From the Publisher:

An Imperial Possession is the first in the Penguin History of Britain series.
