Today, Britain's Roman Town survive in numerous different forms: from the earthworks of small roadside settlements in Lincolnshire, to the unending new discoveries from deep beneath London's busy modern streets, and the great ruins at Leicester and Wroxester. They bear witness to Britain's first period as a single political, social and economic entity, and they helped form the framwework modern Briain is still built around. This is a completely updated edition of the author's well-known book on the subject, taking into account a vast amount of new work and discoveries over the last decade. He examines the four centuries of Romano-British history, from the ramshackle streetside developments in the opening years of conquest, right through to the archaeological ysteries of the third and fourth centuries.
