Fascinating account of Romans conquest, occupation and later abandon of Britain but slightly dated with copyright 1979. I hope to find a more recent publication to see how the story has changed based on recent discoveries. I gave it a lower rating because of the very small print which was murder on the eyes.
I've read and re-read this entertaining book about the history of Roman Britain many times. Interestingly, it was rescued from a yard sale:)

Picked it on impulse from the library and surprised myself by reading the whole book. Concur with Diffell's Facebook review.
An Excellent book regarding the life and history of the Romans in Britain.
