ISBN13: 9780713463125. The Buildings of Roman Britain. by Guy de la Bédoyère.

The author first outlines events from the Iron Age period immediately preceding the conquest in AD 43 to the emperor Honorius’s advice to the Britons in 410 to fend for themselves. He then tackles the issues facing Britons after the absorption of their culture by an invading army, including the role of government and the military in the province, religion, commerce, technology, and daily life.

A detailed portrait for nonspecialists of the many facets of Romano-British society as revealed by archaeological excavation, including the most recent discoveries. may become the standard archaeological survey of Roman Britain for students and lay readers. Simultaneously scholarly and attractive.

Seeking to recover something of the appearance of Roman Britain by reconstructing the buildings from existing ground plans, this book deals thematically with an extensive range of building types, from country villas and urban basilicas to bridges and lighthouses. The book covers construction techniques, including interior decoration and features; military buildings, including frontier works, Hadrian's Wall and the Antonine Wall; public buildings, including market buildings, inns, monumental arches; sacred sites, including Romano-Celtic temples, Mithraea and rural shrines; other buildings including roads, bridges, wharfs and quays, aqueducts, drains and sewers, mills, kilns and ovens, tombs and mausolea. The appendices deal with orthographic projections, inscriptions, recommended sites and Romano-British history.
  • This is one of the most extraordinary history/archaeology books I've ever encountered. It is packed full of historical details, maps, and reconstructions of Roman buildings, almost all of which are now (in Britain) nothing but foundations. Further, the text is written in an intelligent but light-hearted style, making it highly accessible to non-specialists. The only, very minor, negative is that a couple of the drawings/paintings of the derelict Roman remains seem to show "gravity defying" stones, and don't seem to correspond to all the known facts. Nonetheless, that's absolute nitpicking, in what is a magnificent achievement of a book.

  • The book came promply and it was as discribed. The pictures in the book help with understanding of what is written.
