Reissued in new covers, this is the first volume in the "Oxford History of England". It draws on literary sources and advances in archaeology, charting life in Roman Britain from the first Roman invasion under Julius Caesar to the final collapse of the Roman Empire in the west. It examines question such as: how much did the Britons adopt the Roman way of life during their long history as Roman provincials?; was Britain an integral part of the Roman Empire?; and what was its own distictive character?
