Imagine Ireland untouched by Roman influence when Britain was part of the Roman Empire, a time when the distance was nothing for sailors routinely navigating the entire Mediterranean. Yet, the accepted view has been there was no Roman expedition to Ireland. The Irish lived in Celtic purity with little outside influence until St Patrick brought Christianity. Yet, many sites have produced Roman objects indicating a Roman presence in Ireland. "Roman Ireland" is a fresh reconsideration of Roman influence in Ireland. It outlines the influence of Latin on the Irish language, the Roman contribution to Irish art and the new contacts trade opened between the Irish and Roman worlds. Roman influence on social life, craftsmanship and farming is disclosed. Finally, new insights are provided on Christianisation as a vehicle of Romanisation in Ireland and the likely occurrence of at least one Roman military invasion of Ireland.
