This first volume of a four-volume corpus of Roman mosacis in Britain covers the north and east from Northants to Yorkshire and from Warwickshire to East Anglia. The book begins with a general introduction on mosaics and their construction and their workshop groups, and then proceeds to the catalogue, which includes every mosaic known, described by county and by site, with a description and an illustration - these are generally in colour and are taken from the best sources - published as engravings, photos, or from meticulous paintings, most of which are by David Neal. It is a sumptuous volume, and an indispensable work of reference.
