The Roman Occupation of Britain and its Legacy by Rupert Jackson

This book tells the fascinating story of Roman Britain, beginning with the late pre-Roman Iron Age and ending with the province's independence from Roman rule in AD 409. Writing in a clear, readable and lively style (with a satirical eye to the strange features of past times), Jackson draws on current research to deepen our understanding of Roman Britain.
