Review:

'With considerations of Romanisation and identity very much at the forefront of current thinking and research ion roman archaeology, it is a pleasure to welcome a book which makes such a substantive contribution to the subject ... this is a very original book, essential reading for all working and researching in the filed of roman archaeology.' British Archaeology

'... elegant, readable ...' Cambridge Archaeological Journal

''Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.' [Cool] begins her fascinating study of eating and drinking in Roman Britain with this quotation from Brillat-Savarin. By the end of the book, the reader has been provided with a mass of detailed archaeological evidence, laid out with admirable clarity, from which to make an informed attempt to judge for themselves 'who the Roman Britons were'.' The Journal of Classics Teaching

'Like the author, most of us are interested in food and drink, so this book should have wide appeal, and deservedly so. ... The evidence available to her is peculiarly rich, extending beyond the confines of artefacts and environmental evidence to the treasure house of the Vindolanda tablets, and her masterly collation and interpretation of this evidence will be of interest to specialist and non-specialist alike.' Britannia
