For nearly four centuries, Britain served as the western border of the Roman Empire. Invaded in AD 43, it was initially a wild place prone to Celtic uprisings such as those led by Boudicca. However, as the decades passed, the unrest settled and the Romans set to work building temples, roads, baths and villas,. Life in Britain became similar to life in any of the corners of the empire, with the order and culture of the Romans mixing freely with the native cultures. Covering all aspects of Roman British life from family, food, religion, and travel, this book allows the reader to discover what it was like to be a citizen of the greatest empire in the world, while at the same time living near the edge of the map.
