This work provides a survey of the jewellery of Roman Britain. Fully illustrated and accessible to both the specialist and amateur enthusiast, it surveys the full range of personal ornament worn in Britain during the Roman period, the 1st to 4th centuries AD. It emphasizes the presence of two distinct cultural and artistic traditions, the classical element introduced by the Romans and the indigeneous Celtic background. The interaction of these traditions affected all aspects of Romano-British life and is illustrated in the jewellery.; The meaning and significance of personal ornament in a wide range of cultures is discussed, including such matters as symbolism and the display of wealth and status. The principal types of Romano-British jewellery are classified in detail, drawing attention to those which can be relatively closely dated. The coverage is not restricted to precious-metal objects, but includes jewellery made of base metals and materials such as bone, jet and glass. The final chapter is devoted to the techniques of manufacture, a subject which has become better understood in recent years as a result of scientific advances. The book should appeal to anyone who practices, teaches or studies Roman archaeology, together with all those with a professional or amateur interest in the history of jewellery and design.

"Although the book is geared toward aspiring professionals, it can also be useful to seasoned professionals who find themselves at a crossroads in their careers and are seeking new ways of thinking or addressing social issues. St. John leaves the reader with a sense of urgency for integrating moral reasoning in professional practice."--Education Review, November 2009 "The interdisciplinary approach to complex social problems offered by St. John is sorely needed in graduate education classrooms!.The text's inclination toward big questions lacking easy answers makes it a solid bet for drawing out substantive dialogue."--Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, 47(1), 120-122 "In this text, St John demonstrates his ability to review, reflect and link theories and research on moral reasoning, professional development and social justice...for those who are interested in research or exploring moral reasoning and reflective practice within communities of practice, this is an important book that can serve as a guide for framing further research and/or exploring pedagogy.
