This book looks at the religious beliefs of the people of the roman province of Britain and at the gods they worshipped. Little literary evidence survies and it is therefore necessary to rely almost wholly on epitraphic and icongraphical representations. The book firstr examines the pre-Roman Celtic background to Romano-British religion from about 500BC. The chapters following analyse the nature of the evidence; the introduction of Roman religion to the province; oriental cults including Christianity; the integration of Roman with pre-existing British and other Celtic cults, and the resulting composite religion which thus emerged. The final chapter examines stylised Celtic representations of anonymous divinities.
